Concrete Pressure

Concrete Pressure

Concrete Pressure Concrete pressure is the force of the concrete applied to the face of the formwork. Typically, it is resisted by thru-ties on double sided formwork or with diagonal props on single sided formwork. Determining concrete lateral pressures is detailed in...

Engineering Knowledge Base Our objective for updating the Acrow website was to turn this platform into a truly functional and user-friendly tool. The website is now a great location for direct access to all technical information and CAD Blocks offered by the Acrow...
Falsework Bracing

Falsework Bracing

Falsework Bracing Falsework bracing is critical to the system taking the specified load, both during and after concrete placement. The bracing effectively stiffens the vertical elements of the falsework between the ledger lift heights. As you can see in Figure 1, the...

Engineering Units

Engineering Units EXPLANATION Structural engineers typically talk in either kN or kPa. These units define loads imposed on the structure as either a singular point load or a uniform pressure. Structural engineers generally deal with static loads which mean loads that...
