In this article today I will discuss about Quantity of Formwork ( Shuttering ) for Beam , column and slab , Many students they are asking this question so therefore today we will discuss , so after reading this article you will be able to know that how to calculate quantity of formwork for column beam and slab. Let’s get start.
Quantity of formwork :
Formwork should be measure in square meter. so also we can take the surface area of cocrete for the shuttering area.
The form area ( Quantity ) is depend on the surface area of concrete but special for RCC slab.
Quantity of formwork for Column :
the column is square or rectangular therefore we have to take 4 sides to calculate the quantity of formwork ( Shuttering )
So Area of Formwork = Sum of 4 Sides x height of column
Here 4 sides measurement can be any thing and than we will multiply with height of column than it give us the quantity of shutting.
Example : If the Column dimension are = 1ft x 1ft and Height of column is 10 ft than
Quantity of fromwork = sum of 4 side of column x height of column = ( 1 + 1+ 1+ 1 ) x 10 = 40 sq.ft but we have to find the formwork area in sq.m so 40 ft / 10.76 which can give us the value in Sq.meter.
Quantity of formwork for Beam :
First of all we take the X- Section of beam and than we measure the length of the two sides and the base of the beam.
1: Sum three dimension of beam ( beam base + one vertical side + other vertical side )
2: Than measure the span of the beam.
Formula to find the Quantity of formwork for beam
Area of shuttering for beam = beam base + two vertical sides) x length of beam
Quantity of formwork for slab :
the any shape of slab shuttering ( formwrok ) we can find very easily.
find the any shape of concrete surface area is the area of formwork,
