Title: Shore and Reshore Scheduling Using a Microcomputer
Author(s): N. J. Gardner and A. Muscati
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 32-36
Keywords: age-strength relation; computer programs; concrete construction; flat concrete slabs; form removal; formwork (construction); loads (forces); multistory buildings; safety; shoring; Construction
Abstract:A computer program that analyzes the safety of proposed construction schedules for multistory flat slab-type structures is described. The program, which is suitable for microcomputers, allows the user to input a proposed erection schedule and determine if it is appropriate. Alternatively, the number of forms and reshores can be input and the stripping and casting schedule calculated, or the stripping and casting times input and acceptable form/reshore combinations determined.
