A collection of 15 papers dealing with concrete formwork, this volume will prove invaluable to designers and constructors alike. With formwork representing anywhere from 35 to 60 percent of the cost of a concrete structure, formwork should be carefully considered when selecting building designs, layouts, structural member sizes and construction methods. Forming Economical Concrete Buildings will offer the reader substantial savings through the integration of the forming system into the total building process. Key subjects include: challenges in making concrete economical, effect of form tie selection on project cost; and quality management of accelerated construction.
