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 form-work 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 construction conditions. Part 1 was compiled from data first available, and on that basis certain recommendations were made (p. 178). Subsequently more data became avail-able and are discussed in Part 2. From these further studies, modifications were derived in the conclusions (p. 189).
