Research on Potential of Advanced Technology for Housing. A Building System Based on Filament Winding and New Developments in Water and Waste Management.
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor.
The University of Michigan and Aerojet Corporation report their development of a new building system which will offer the consumer a higher quality product at lower cost. To achieve this goal, the University-Aerojet proposal suggested filament winding (a process derived from the aerospace program for the manufacture of reinforced plastic structures) as the basis for the development of a new building system for family housing. The study concentrated first on conceptualizing the building system to be developed and proceeded with an identification of its potential effective parameters as determined by inherent advantages, the limitations imposed by the nature of the system, and the probable extent of market support.
