Concrete formwork represents close to half the cost of a concrete structure. Form development, therefore, warrants serious and detailed engineering consideration. The updated APA publication, Design/Construction Guide: Concrete Forming, is intended for use by architects, engineers and contractors in the design of cost-effective concrete structures.
The 29-page brochure contains panel grade information, form maintenance recommendations, design data and several updated project case studies. Updates to this version also includes the addition of Performance Category 11/16 design recommendations, and the new design values for southern yellow pine.
Design/Construction Guide: Concrete Forming, Form V345, is available only as a free downloadable PDF. Revised May 2012.
