This module is based on Chapter 4 excerpted from ACI 347R-14, “Guide to Formwork for Concrete.” The chapter addresses planning and design considerations for formwork. More specifically, the common design deficiencies, vertical and horizontal loads, safety factors for formwork accessories and shoring are discussed. This document was developed by ACI Committee 347 and approved by the ACI Technical Activities Committee.
We have included Chapter 1-3 as supporting information for this course.
