Abstract:
ACH Foam Technologies’ Foam-Control EPS Geofoam was used to create the formwork required to shape concrete bridge piers for the Cheyenne South Valley Connector in Pocatello, ID. Foam blocks were cut and shaped, and curved fillets were attached to the cut blocks to add a smooth, aesthetic flair to the final surfaces. The finished blocks were delivered to the site, ready to be clamped into conventional wall formwork.
