Abstract:
In this paper, first order probabilistic methods are used to develop new rules for the design of steel formwork shores. This was necessary because recent research suggests that current practice underestimates the maximum load in formwork shores. New limit states design rules are presented. They are calibrated to achieve a target reliability index chosen after considering the relative reliability of previous Australian and current international practice, as well as the degree of reliability suggested in the literature and adopted in interacting Standards.
