Sheathing Panels

Flying forms usually consist of large sheathing panels that are typi­cally made of plywood or plyform. Plywood with standard size of 4 X 8 ft (1.22 X 2.44 m) allows fewer joints and produces a high quality of concrete. The thickness of plywood used is a design function. Figure 4.2 shows flying formwork system with a sheath­ing panel on the top.
