Abstract:
Elements which enter into cost of formwork include such diverse items as scheduling, iob specifications, form materials, labor involved in building forms, labor involved in placing and removing forms, handling methods and equip-ment for reuses, hardware, safety, and many other details. Each factor may affect the forming methods selected for a job and, conversely, may be affected by the forming methods. These various components that make up form cost are examined, as are effects of job conditions. A check list of form planning considerations is offered. Examples illustrate factors in figuring form cost. The form planning for a bridge job involving a number of concrete piers is described in detail.
