Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A LOW COST STRUCTURE
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT LA CONSTRUCTION D'UNE STRUCTURE PEU COUTEUSE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for the construction of low-cost building structure through the synergistic composition of material, process, and structural design. In a first embodiment, a specially fashioned balloon (14), in the shape of a house, is used as a one-sided form, and is sprayed with a building material formulation. The building formulation may include: structural material, reinforcing material such as fibers (52) to eliminate or minimize separate structural reinforcement, a gaseous bubble material (to provide thermal insulation), and other ingredients such as fillers, strengtheners, bulk-formers, accelerators, coloring agents and dryers. The structure can be created rapidly, and the balloon (14) deflated and removed in minimum time, all by as few as two men. The low cost of the labor and materials and equipment used according to the present invention result in a more economical method of creating a building than any presently known method.
(FR) Procédé et appareil permettant la construction d'une structure de bâtiment peu coûteuse grâce à la composition synergique d'une conception de matériau, de procédé et de structure. Dans un premier mode de réalisation, on utilise un ballon (14), confectionné spécialement et ayant la forme d'une maison, comme forme mono-face, sur lequel on pulvérise une formulation de matériau de construction. La formulation de construction peut comprendre un matériau structural, un matériau de renforcement tel que des fibres (52) afin d'éliminer ou de réduire au minimum un renforcement structural séparé, une matière à bulles gazeuses (afin d'assurer l'isolation thermique), ainsi que d'autres ingrédients tels que charges, renforçateurs, agents de remplissage, accélérateurs, agents colorants et produits desséchants. On peut réaliser la structure rapidement, gonfler et retirer le ballon (14) en un minimum de temps, deux hommes suffisant pour tout faire. Le faible coût de la main d'oeuvre, des matériaux et de l'équipement utilisés selon la présente invention se traduit par un procédé de construction plus économique que tout autre procédé connu à ce jour.
