Bolt hole places must also be repaired. o For steel formwork plates must be leveled by mallet and loose corners must be welded. - Time of formwork removal depends on : o Type of Cement  Rapid hardening cements require lesser time as compared to OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement) o Ratio of concrete mix  Rich ratio concrete gain strength earlier as compared to weak ratio concrete. o Weather condition
    •  Hydration process accelerates in hot weather conditions as compared to cold and humid weather conditions.- Formwork cost is controlled by : ( what affect the cost of formwork ? ) o Formwork Material cost o Formwork erecting cost o Formwork removal cost o Formwork jointing cost (Nails and Cables) o Labor charges.- Scaffolding is : o It’s a temporary structure to provide a platform at different levels of a building for workers and Materials.- Write the types of scaffoldings : o Single Scaffolds o Double Scaffolds o Ladder Scaffolds o Cantilever Scaffolds o Suspended Scaffolds o Steel or Tubular Scaffolds- Shoring is : o It is the method of providing temporary support (shores) to an unsafe structure.- Write Shoring types : o Horizontal shoring or flying shoring o Vertical shoring or dead shoring o Inclined Shoring or flying shoring
    • - Sketch o Formwork for column o Doubled scaffolding o Horizontal shoring
