The 8th Edition of Formwork for Concrete (SP-4) has been completely revised and updated. Authored by David W. Johnston, North Carolina State University, the 512-page hardcover book includes 500 modern color photographs, 150 color illustrations, and new chapters. This edition considers the updated lateral pressure and other provisions now provided by ACI 347R-15 “Guide to Formwork for Concrete.” Expanded coverage is provided for wind loads on formwork specialized from ASCE/SEI 7-10 as modified by ASCE/SEI 37/14. The design of formwork has been divided into two chapters: one focusing on bending, shear, and deflection of wall, slab, and column formwork members, and a second focusing on shoring and bracing members. Bridge formwork considerations have been moved into a separate chapter. A new chapter summarizing the recommendations of ACI 347.3R-13, “Guide to Formed Concrete Surface,” has been added.
Concrete is a binder for minerals, sands, gravels and portland cement; it is the most versatile of masonry materials. It is also the most versatile of construction materials. It can be used in virtually any way an engineer can think of. Concrete is used as a major material in many applications: covering streets and sidewalks; structures of almost any type, large and small: bridges, dams, buildings, monuments, landscaping, protective walls, tunnels, fill for highways, sound barriers, parking lots, cellars. Concrete is used in all climates except arctic areas. While it has been used for thousands of years, concrete and concrete elements have been a major part of the work and development of humankind.
Concrete Design is the study of the design and arrangement of concrete for use, usually in a construction project. Some concrete elements are designed to be permanent; they are for aesthetic purposes. These elements are generally seen as important in a city, country or state of the United States. Others are short lived and may be used as a temporary form, which is removed once the project is completed. Concrete elements such as these are often made for specific projects.
