3.5.1 Slab Form Components

Подпись: Copyright © Marcel Dekker, Inc. All rights reserved.As mentioned in the first two chapters, basic elements for an ele­vated slab formwork are sheathing, joists, stringers, shores,

wedges, and mudsills. Joists and stringers are designed as a sys­tem of main and secondary beams, as the joists rest on stringers. Design usually starts by first selecting a cross section for the ele­ments and then calculating a corresponding span. An integer or modular value is usually selected for spacing.
