Horizontal Formwork Systems: Crane-Set Systems
4.1 Flying Formwork System
4.2 Column-Mounted Shoring Systems
4.3 Tunnel Formwork System
Crane-set formwork systems are typically constructed and assembled as one large unit that can be moved horizontally or vertically from floor to floor by cranes. As a result, adequate crane services are required for handling these systems. This chapter deals with the following crane-set formwork systems: flying forms, column – mounted shoring system, and tunnel forms. These systems are characterized by their high initial cost and their rapid floor cycle time.
