Overview

Based on the practical knowledge amassed by the author through years of hands-on experience, this authoritative guide offers unique insights on currently used concrete formwork structures from classification, system components, and materials properties to selection and construction requirements and procedures while considering product quality, labor, safety, and economic factors throughout. Concrete Formwork Systems assesses conventional, wood, metal, flying, tunnel, ganged, jump, and self-raising forming systems, column-mounted shoring systems, and slipforms in terms of applications, advantages, and limitations elaborates on the design of concrete slabs and wall structures according to standards set by the American Plywood Association and the National Design Specificationr for Wood Construction provides the criteria for choosing the optimal horizontal or vertical forming system using comparative analysis tables covers nationally and internationally recognized design values for stresses and more! Complementing discussions with references to key sources in the literature and effective use of equations, drawings, photographs, and examples, Concrete Formwork Stystems is an ideal on-the-job resource for civil and design engineers, architects, concrete contractors, formwork subcontractors, and graduate-level and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
