Abstract: The paper presents the study of the earthquake-resistance of a precast ferrocement Olympic pool. The structural behavior is analyzed under various loading conditions that can act in such a structure. In order to determine the lateral terrain pressure the Rankine method is applied, because the friction between the wall and the soil is neglected. Having assessed the state of the acting forces, the design is made for the worst case, afterwards cracking and bending are checked, and the parameters of Specific Surface Reinforcement(Sr), which is between (0.5cm-1 -3cm-1) and Reinforcement Volume Factor(Vf), ranging from 1% to 8%, conditions that must be met by ferrocement structures. After the pool was designed, the amount of material to be used was calculated, and then compared with the reinforced concrete Olympic pool built in Boyaca, Colombia, for the Pan American games in 2006 taking into consideration only the material cost.
