Components of Column
Form

Sheathing
Sheathing

forms the
surface of the
concrete.
It must be
watertight since
the concrete is
in a plastic
state when
placed in the

Yoke
Yokes

are horizontal
reinforcements.
Main purpose is to prevent
concrete from distorting the
form.
Hydrostatic force is exerted
on the form by the concrete
and this pressure is greater
at the bottom hence the
yokes are placed closer
together at the bottom.

Footing Form & Stake


Footings

spread
the weight over a
larger ground area.
Stakes are used to
hold the sides of
the footings in
place & prevent it
from spreading.
