Abstract:
This report is a preliminary step in the preparation of a recommended practice for design and construction of concrete formwork. It presents recommended design assumptions for lateral pressure of concrete on vertical formwork when revibration and external vibration are not to be used. It is intended to provide a safe guide within the range of most formwork and common con-struction conditions. Part 1 was compiled from data first available, and on that basis certain recommendations were made (p. 178). Subsequently more data became available and are discussed in Part 2. From these further studies, modifications were derived in the conclusions (p. 189).
