oceanic concrete honeycomb shell building ramform island technology
April 17, 2014 at 2:17 pm #23353
To picture a oceanic floating island righ we should picture a concrete honeycomb shell like this.Curved shapes, light, hollow, honeycomb, wave impact and overwash resistent. Triangular shape with a bow to handle waves, and a broad stern to maximize stability and access the ocean in a protected calm water space. http://concretesubmarine.activeboard.com/t51926036/establishing-a-ramform-floating-base-in-the-high-seas-concre/

Again, you can start floating shells really small it is not the initial budget that matters it is the business dynamics that you can develop with the initial shell…why not try the barbecue island if you are on extreme low budget and want to go oceanic. Especially the ramform island and the bubble living space concept allow for extreme small start ups with a few squaremeters and keep growing as the business dynamics develops…

Oceanic concrete honeycomb shell. Combine fiber concrete with glass a bow for wave handling with open terraces and ocean access. http://yook3.comApril 22, 2014 at 5:08 am #23362
Elmer, I am sorry to say that all these pictures you post are just spam, they do nothing to encourage or inform anyone planning to build something on a limited budget.April 22, 2014 at 9:37 am #23363
I believe Ellmer is just using this forum to improve his own Google pagerank. The pictures are no more helpful than pics in the scifi section of deviantart. The pictures address no technical challenges to being on the water, no social issues, and cost more than the budget of medium sized towns.April 22, 2014 at 12:34 pm #23364

There’s 6019 “members” registered on this forum, and that’s the caliber of conversation? This is so not encouraging.April 24, 2014 at 1:59 pm #23372

Ellmer, i am not reading amy more spam pointing to your website until you actually build one of these dream pictures.June 26, 2014 at 9:00 am #23682
Light floating honeycomb concrete floating platform Cartagena Colombia, built it, have been there, have done that. Big things have small beginnings…Floating concrete honeycomb structures can meet and undercut land based real estate prices. I tested that out. When doing it location is a top concern, TANKA stagnation needs to be avoided VENICE transition needs to be achived. The key is to plug the “floating venture” into the right trade at the right point of its development and keep it growing…

I really don’t see the need for all the honeycombing inside the above triangular hull. One athwartship watertight bulkhead on the median line and doubling the hull thickness would suffice to assure flotation even in case of a head on collision.
Also, speaking in general, all the waste of material and labor to build a honeycomb inside any hull, will only add to the cost of the structure (8 times more expensive if built the way it’s shown above), with no real benefit to the overall safety and seaworthiness of such structure.July 1, 2014 at 11:58 am #23688
It’s more than what I built.
I would think, the reason for the honeycomb structure is modularity.
Each ‘honeycomb’ base unit can be manufactured individually and
attached together to form a larger unit of whatever size.
Whoever, I could not observe this kind of modularity of the structure
shown on the above picture.
Are you on the picture, Elmer?July 1, 2014 at 5:39 pm #23689
I don’t see “honeycombing” related to modularity,…What is the purpose of building (lets say) 3’x 3′ “modules” and than rafting them up when you can build a 30’x 30′ platform to start up, for much cheaper? I see modularity being useful for bigger scale projects when the start up capital is low. For example, if the goal of the project is to build a 300’x 300′ platform, one can start with a 60’x 60′ one and keep on rafting up modules until the project is complete.
As a general rule for seagoing structure, every sq. foot below deck should be efficiently use for storage (food, water, fuel, cargo, etc), machineries or living quarters. If you fill that space with “honeycomb” you will be wasting it. Since you still need space for the above, you will have to build it somewhere else. Therefore, you will be “double building” and spend extra money, in my opinion.
