WHAT ROLE DOES SHAPED STEEL FORMWORKS PLAY IN CONSTRUCTION?
Shaped steel formwork plays an important role in creating sturdy, uniform concrete structures that meet the technical requirements of construction projects. To learn more about this type of steel formwork, please refer to the article below.
Shaped steel formwork
In construction, to create a solid structure and support construction, many different types of items are needed. The most known of these are scaffolding and formwork and many other materials such as cement, bricks, sand, construction stone, etc.
The system with solid structure and construction support commonly known today is the scaffolding system. However, this system does not directly create the structure of the building (foundation, walls or roof…) but supports construction and creates a safe area to protect works under construction.
In addition to the scaffolding system that helps facilitate construction, there is another important type of equipment that helps create a solid structure directly for the project, which is formwork. Shaped steel formwork is a very popular type of formwork used today.
Shaped steel formwork is a type of formwork created by using steel molds with standard sizes and diverse shapes such as square, round, rectangular. The main purpose of this steel formwork is to pour columns, walls and beams in construction projects of different sizes and designs.
The production process of shaped steel formwork includes many different steps. Initially, engineers and designers will analyze and design the details that need to be produced. An initial mold is then created using modern machining technologies such as CNC machining or CNC turning.
The role of shaped steel formwork
The main use of shaped steel formwork is to support the process of pouring columns, walls and beams in construction projects. Shaped steel formwork is used to:
Creates a firm and uniform surface for concrete pouring
Shaped steel formwork helps create a hard and smooth surface, ensuring the accuracy and uniformity of the concrete surface after completion.
Shapes and supports concrete during the molding process
Profiled steel formwork has good bearing capacity and provides a sturdy mold frame to hold the concrete during pouring. This helps prevent the concrete from spilling out and ensures that it achieves the desired shape and size.
Ensure accuracy and uniformity in construction
With a sturdy steel structure and standard dimensions, shaped steel formwork helps ensure the accuracy and uniformity of columns, walls and beams in construction projects. This increases the aesthetics and ensures the stability and safety of the project.
The size and design of shaped steel formwork are adjusted to suit the size and design of each specific project. Thanks to the use of shaped steel formwork, projects can achieve greater efficiency and stability. Other factors such as material and structure of the formwork also play an important role in providing optimal results.
Formwork standards in construction
Standards for using shaped steel formwork in construction are specified in Vietnamese Standard TCVN 4453:1995 – Standard on Concrete Structures and Fully Reinforced Concrete. This is the standard applied to concrete construction by construction organizations to ensure the quality, safety and environmental sanitation of construction projects.
According to TCVN 4453:1995 standard, formwork acceptance needs to comply with the following requirements:
Shape and size: Formwork needs to match the structure of the design.
Formwork structure: The structure of formwork must comply with regulations.
Flatness between paired panels: Flatness between paired panels must not exceed 3mm.
Cement watertightness: Formwork needs to be tightly sealed to ensure no loss of cement water when pouring and compacting concrete.
Watering: Before pouring concrete, the formwork must be watered.
Ensuring compliance with the above requirements will help ensure construction quality and achieve regulatory standards in the construction sector.
How to choose steel formwork
When choosing profiled steel formwork, there are a number of important factors that you should consider to ensure you choose a formwork that suits your needs.
Formwork material is steel
Choose steel that is of good quality and suitable for your needs. Steel can come in many different types and hardnesses, so you should learn about the properties and bearing capacity of each type of steel before deciding.
Determine the required size and shape for your formwork. This depends on the type of product or project you intend to achieve. Measure and estimate precise dimensions to ensure the formwork is large and precise enough to meet your requirements.
Depending on the desired production process, you should choose formwork with appropriate toughness and hardness. Size, shape and other technical details must also be considered.
Cost of steel formwork
Find out about prices and your financial capabilities. Steel comes in many grades and varies in price, so you should evaluate costs and find a balance between quality and value.
Quality and brand
Choose formwork from reputable and quality manufacturers to ensure the formwork’s durability and reliability.
In addition, if possible, seek opinions from reputable experts or suppliers for more detailed advice on choosing steel formwork.
Hopefully the above information has helped you better understand shaped steel formwork and the effects of this type of board. From there, it can be applied and optimized during the construction process. Formwork plays an important role in construction projects, so it is necessary to choose carefully to get a suitable and quality product.
