INFORMATION SHEET NO. 2.1-2 MATERIALS FOR FABRICATING FORMWORKS


LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Upon completing this section, you should be able to KNOW the DIFFERENT MATERIALS for FABRICATING FORMWORKS and FORMWORK DETAILS. A. Materials used for Formwork Materials used for the construction of concrete formwork range from traditional materials such as wood, steel, aluminum, and plywood to nontraditional materials such as fiberglass. Wood products are the most widely used material for formwork. 1. Timber and Plywood Timber and plywood are the material used most for formwork because it is high in quantity whereby the material is easy to get. Besides that , timber and plywood can be handled better because it is easy to cut it and fix as a formwork. This includes the easy handling of it .

2. Metal Panel Metal formwork has a very high reuse potential. So it is more economical than timber where repetitive work is necessary.

3. Plastic (FRP) Another material used here is the fiberglassreinforced plastic as a formwork. Its functions well because : Moldability Light weight Strength Toughness

B. Construction of Forms consist of: 1. Plywood - It is made in thicknesses of 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, and 3/4 inch, and in widths up to 48 inches. The 8-foot lengths are most commonly used. The 6/8- and 3/4-inch thicknesses are most economical. 2. Supporters or studs - Vertical studs make the sheathing rigid. These studs are generally made from 2 x 4 lumber. Studs also require reinforcing when they extend more than 4 feet. 3. Braces - Braces give the forms stability. The most common brace uses a horizontal member and a diagonal member nailed to a stake and to the stud or wale. The diagonal member of the brace should make a 30 angle with the horizontal member. 4. Spacer - Spreaders must be placed near each tie wire. Spreaders are cut to the same length as the thickness of the wall and placed between the two sheathing surfaces of the forms. 5. Tie Wire - Tie wires hold the forms secure against the lateral pressures of unhardened concrete. Double strands are always used. Ties keep wall forms together as the concrete is positioned. The tie wire is made taut by twisting it with a smooth metal rod or a spike. 6. Assorted CWN - refers to the different size of nail ranging from 1-4 (25 mm100 mm) in length. C. Formwork detail for different structural members In concrete construction formwork is commonly provided for the following structural members:

INFORMATION SHEET NO. 2.1-3 MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF LUMBER


LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Upon completing this section, you should be able to KNOW the MECHANICAL PROPERTIES of LUMBER. Basic understanding of mechanical properties of lumber is necessary for concrete formwork design. Wood is different from any other structural material in that allowable stresses of wood are different according to the orientation of the wood. A. Bending Stresses The figure below shows a simply supported wood beam with a concentrated load applied at the midpoint. This process results in bending. The lumber is stressed internally to resist the external loads. Bending in a member causes tension forces in the extreme fibers along the face farthest from the load and causes compression in the fiber along the side closest to the applied load. The maximum stress induced in the fibers, which occurs at the edges, is referred to as the extreme fiber stress in bending. This stress is highly dependent on the parallel-to-grain strength of the wood in both tension and compression. B. Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) Modulus of elasticity is a measure of stiffness. This factor (MOE) is a relationship between the amount of deflection in the member and the value of load applied that causes the deflection. The amount of deflection depends on the size of the member, the span between the supports, the load, and the particular member specie of wood. The parallel-to-grain MOE (i.e., the stiffness when wood is pushed or pulled parallel to the wood grain) is about 30 times greater than the perpendicular-tograin MOE.

C. Tensile and Compressive Strengths Tensile strength is a measure of the ability of wood to resist pulling forces. On the other hand, compressive strength is a measure of the ability of wood to resist pushing forces. For clear wood (wood without defects), the tensile and compressive strengths for parallel-to-grain loads are approximately 10 times greater than for loads applied perpendicular to the wood grain.

INFORMATION SHEET NO. 2.1-4 ECONOMIC USE OF MATERIALS


LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Upon completing this section, you should be able to KNOW the ECONOMICS USE of MATERIALS Formwork is the largest cost component for a typical multistory reinforced concrete building. Formwork cost accounts for 40 to 60 percent of the cost of the concrete frame and for approximately 10 percent of the total building cost. Timber is an economical material of formworks construction but it has a short life span. As the reusability of timber formwork is low and it can only be reused 8-15 times, several sets of timber formworks are needed for a high-rise building or a large project. Hence, the cost of the formwork is high in long run. Steel formworks might have the high cost at the beginning of the construction but as steel formwork has a long lifespan and high reusability; it can save the cost in long run. This is because less replacement of old formwork is needed. It can save concrete volume needed because it can form a long span comparing to timber formwork. A. Tips for avoiding waste construction materials 1. Study carefully the plan and detailed drawing. 2. From the given detailed drawing, you can study its different parts, including sizes of these parts 3. Cutting lumbers, always refer to the schedule of cutting 4. Always determine the methods of measurement used in the plan for marking 5. Always remember the principles for cutting measure twice and cut once 6. In cutting lumber and plywoods, always use effective tools.

INFORMATION SHEET NO. 2.2-1 FORM DESIGN


LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Upon completing this section, you should be able to KNOW the IMPORTANCE OF FORMWORKS, FACTORS INFLUENCING FORM DESIGN and FORM CHARACTERISTICS. Form is a temporary boarding, sheating or pan used to produce the desired shape and size of concrete. The structural members of a building are built-up into its desired shape and dimension through the use of forms which serve as mold for the mixed concrete. Concrete mixture is generally semi-fluid that reproduces the shape of anything into which it is poured. Concrete form should be water tight, strong enough and rigid to sustain the weight of the concrete. It should be simple and economically designed in such manner that they are easily removed and reassembled without damaged to themselves or to the concrete. A. Form Design 1. Importance of Formwork Protects the concrete Aids in the curing of the concrete Supports any reinforcing bars or conduit embedded within it Represents up to one-third of a concrete structure's total cost 2. Factors influencing form design Nature of the structure Availability of equipment and form materials Anticipated reuse of the forms Familiarity with construction methods that influence the formwork design Strength of the forming materials and the loads they must support Concrete's final shape, dimensions, and surface finish B. Form Characteristics 1. Ensure that the forms are tight, rigid, and strong. Loose forms permit loss of cement which can result in- Honeycombing. Honeycombing is when the concrete is not satisfactorily consolidated or vibrated air pockets form within the concrete and present a pocked appearance.

2. 3. 4. 5.

Sand streaking. Sand streaking occurs when concrete loses too much water due to loose forms; the water carries sand with it through the gaps in the formwork and causes streaking. Ensure that the forms are braced enough to align them and strong enough to hold the concrete. Take special care in bracing and tying down forms used for configurations, such as retaining walls. Ensure that the forms are wide at the bottom and taper toward the top. Ensure that wall forms are braced properly. The concrete in wall forms, such as the first pour, tends to lift the form above its proper elevation. Reuse forms by constructing them in a manner that allows easy removal and replacement with minimal damage.
