The present booklet contains 5 selected instruction examples to practise making of different types of form-work.
The first example serves for practising the prefabrication of formwork panels.
Prefabricated formwork panels are indispensable for beam and column formworks. Prefabricated formwork panels, however, are also recommended for series production of foundation and ceiling formworks.
In that case the construction of the panels differs from that of panels for beam and column formworks but the technology of prefabrication is the same.
The construction of a multi-use formwork panel for beam and column formwork is explained and shown in the Trainees' Handbook of Lessons.
Thus example 1.1. represents direct or possible preparations for the other four examples and, therefore, there is a close technological connexion between them. The examples 1.2. to 1.5. explain how to produce the four most common types of formwork.
The required materials, tools and auxiliary accessories are specified for each example.
Moreover, the necessary previous knowledge is stated which is the basis for independent practising by the trainee.
The order of working steps of the relevant sequence of operations for the individual examples has been established by experience. If it is strictly followed, no faults would normally occur.
The examples selected can be modified to suit the relevant site conditions. Specific modifications ordered, however, may require changes to the sequence of operations.
