Title: Stremgth of Concrete Forms
Author(s): H.S. Taft
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 10-46
Abstract:Though concrete form-work is of a very temporary naature it is of the utmost importance that it be designed and concstructed to meet the loads brought upon it by the wet concrete; otherwise distaster is likely to result to the temporary structure. While at first form-work was more or less of a hit and miss, now that concrete construction has become so universal, the design and building of the form-structure is being studied and looked after almost as carefully as the concrete itself. Thus it is fitting to consider the question of strength of concrete forms and how best to determine the sizes and spacing of the various members that go to make up a form in toto.
