INTRODUCTION

Formwork
important things in completion a project y impact to the cost, time, and quality of project
y

Formwork failures
big impact to the people involved in a project y Not occur-follow the form of design
y

TYPES OF FAILURES
Dimensional inaccuracy Lifting of single faced forms Propping inadequate Loss of material Surface blemishes

DIMENSIONAL INACCURACY

CAUSES Miscommunication Error in calculation Lack of supervision Unskilled worker Material did not have proper protection

SOLUTION

The engineer should done site investigation and measure the right dimension to be used especially when steel formwork been used and need to be order from factory

Use new technology-laser

Each parties play their duties


y

Supervisor supervise worker.

Gave proper protection to material

LOSS OF MATERIAL

LOSS OF MATERIAL
Refer to ties and props - are not correctly spaced Formwork tying
y

connect the two faces of the double faced forms together and affect the balance of the force between them Support formwork

Formwork props
y

CAUSES OF FAILURES
Inappropriate chose the type of ties Ties are not be installed or screw tightly Over tightening the ties The space between each props are not correctly/sequence

PREVENTIONS
Choose the right ties Check the accuracy on formwork installation during the ties installation Space between the installed props to avoid any loss material from the concrete. The engineer of the record make sure contractor has all the design data such as

live loads, y superimposed dead loads, y any other information which related to the project
