Presents a basic analytical method for shoring and re-shoring loads of multistory buildings. Discusses the factors that must be considered, the assumptions for simplification of the analysis and shows the method for determining the estimated loads that will be transferred to the structure. Presents the procedure required to determine the ability of the structure to resist the estimated loads with an appropriate safety factor and the adjustments to the construction procedure that must be made in the event the applied loads are in excess of the capacity of the structure.
