Abstract:
This paper describes a permanent forming system constructed of panels molded of expanded polystyrene. The panels interlock for fast erection and remain in place to provide insulation to the finished wall. Construction of forms and walls is discussed. The system can be used above or below ground. Bracing and whaler systems, methods of forming window and door openings, and finishes are discussed.
