Falsework - formwork, shuttering, access scaffolding, etc. - constitutes a major item of construction costs. Interest in the subject has mounted as this, and engineers' increasing responsibility for the design and overall safety of falsework have been appreciated. This practical handbook of design and practice contains the latest information on the design of falsework and is a guide to check falsework systems. It also provides a quick means of reference on loadings, material properties, section and fixing data and simple analysis techniques appropriate for use in the determination of forces, stresses and deflections of falsework systems. Worked examples are provided throughout the book. This is one of the first books to apply the recent Code of Practice on Falsework to contain safe load graphs for timber based on new allowable stress, and to include both framework and centering. It also provides the first consumer's guide' to falsework materials. Manual.
