During an early article on Form work , we have already seen the basic difference between centering-Shuttering and Scaffolding. Please Refer to this link ( Focused form work ) for a quick reference.
We also referred to another article on Form work ( Difference between C ,S & S ).
You would notice that all these discussions were based on the assumption that the RCC surface was either Horizontal or Vertical.
Therefore , it becomes a case of specific interest to all of us , in case we have different surfaces of RCC elements which might include say :
- Curved in Plan
- Curved in Elevation
- Composite surfaces which are curved both in horizontal/vertical planes.
With this article, we now intend to discuss these various other types of surfaces where the form work is something special , different than only Vertical or only Horizontal.
Instead of just doing a theoretical discussion , let us actually see the different cases and discuss the typical features.
