Abstract: In extended areas of the world water is so scarce that for many people the possibility of storing drinking water is of vital importance. This paper describes a very simple technique for water tank construction called H-F-B (heart filled blocks). The technique makes use of a simple mould (which can be made even in rural areas) for the manufacture of concrete building blocks. The block pro­duction is easy and requires the use of neither energy nor skilled workmen.
Description: This is a conference paper.
