Abstract: In the paper the geometric design of pre-cast ferrocement deposits sealing joint is done, where the central vertical joints between two wall border panels and the vertical stiffener called counter fort is analyzed, corner joints between two wall panels and a vertical edges stiffener with a 45 degrees angle and the joint between the wall elements and bottom slab. A variation in height was taken from 1 to 2m, obtaining a joint design for each depth; these are evaluated and designed structurally, where cracking is checked from the allowable stress and parameters to be met by ferrocement structures. Specific Surface Reinforcement (Sr), which spans from (0.5 to 2 cm-1) and the Volume Fraction of Reinforcement (Vf), which is between (1 and 8%). Once designed geometrically and structurally joints at different depths, these are evaluated and compared with each other to obtain a unique design that is valid for any of the evaluated depths and can provide a rational design.
