Formwork for Concrete Structures, 4th Edition

Robert L. Peurifoy

Preference :

This book is written for architects, engineers, and constructors who are responsible for designing and/or building formwork and temporary structures during the construction process. It is also designed to serve either as a textbook for a course in timber and formwork design or as a reference for systematic self-study of the subject. A new chapter on the design of wood members for formwork and temporary structures has been added to this edition. Numerous example problems have been added throughout the text to illustrate practical applications for calculating loads, stresses, and designing members. New summary tables have been added to assist the reader in understanding the concepts and techniques of designing formwork and temporary structures. This fourth edition has been developed with the latest structural design recommendations by the National Design Specification (NDS 2005), published by the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA). In writing this edition, an effort has been made to conform to the intent of this reference document. The material presented is suggested as a guide only, and final responsibility lies with the designer of formwork and temporary structures.

Many patented systems and commercial accessories are available to increase the speed and safety of erecting formwork. Numerous figures and photographs are presented to introduce the reader to the available forming systems for walls, columns, beams, and slabs.
