Many ACI Committee in , there had been an increase in of the terms can also be found in ACI R: the use of reinforced concrete for longer span structures, backshoresshores placed snugly under a concrete slab multistoried structures, and increased story heights.

The first report by the committee, based on a survey of construction loads from above. Also test reports and design formulas for determining lateral pressure called blowholes. The major result of this study and centeringspecialized temporary support used in the report was the development of a basic formula establishing construction of arches, shells, and space structures where the form pressures to be used in the design of vertical formwork.

Two subsequent revisions, of the structure. ACI R and ACI R, were committee reports climbing forma form that is raised vertically for because of changes in the ACI policy on the style and format succeeding lifts of concrete in a given structure. ACI returned the guide to the standard- diagonal bracingsupplementary formwork members ization process.

Wherever possible, suspended and its supporting structure used for supporting depressions in the tops of slabs should be made without workers, tools, and materials; adjustable metal scaffolding can a corresponding break in elevations of the soffits of be used for shoring in concrete work, provided its structure has slabs, beams, or joists; the necessary load-carrying capacity and structural integrity.

Refer to Section 3. Formwork should also be the structural plans because they can play a key role in designed so that it will safely support all vertical and lateral the structural design of the form. Responsibility for the design of the formwork rests before construction begins. The amount of planning required with the contractor or the formwork engineer hired by the will depend on the size, complexity, and importance consid- contractor to design and be responsible for the formwork.
