Presents brief introductory statement on the need for formwork standards based on the fact that 35 to 60 percent of the total cost of the concrete work in a project in the United States is the formwork. A section is given on engineer-architect specifications noting the kind and amount of specification the engineer or architect should provide the contractor. Since the committee concludes that formwork design and engineering, as well as construction, must be the re-sponsibility of the contractor, the recommendations contained in the report are directed to that group. However, an understanding of these recommendations by engineers and architects will aid these groups in their specification functions. The report is divided into five chapters: 1. Design, 2. Construction, 3. Materials for Formwork, 4. Forms for Special Structures, and 5. Formwork for Special Methods of Construction.
