Flying formwork

The flying form is a system of formwork which is assembled


into form units usually at ground and is located to form
concrete elements at the site location. The form units are
further relocated at new location with virtually no disassembly
of parts to form concrete elements.
The flying forms are more common in high rise buildings for
rapid cycle construction where in large repetitions are possible
and thus justifying their relatively high initial cost of
fabrication.

A typical flying formwork consists of sheathing member


(mostly plywood), trusses or shores, wooden beams as stringers
and joists.
Joists are timber or aluminium beams connected in most cases
to deep trusses.

K N JHA Department of Civil Engineering

In case of flying formwork all the members are assembled


together to allow lifting of the whole system in one piece which is
in contrast of hand set forms.

Step-1
Forms are preassembled at ground level
Entire assembly is lifted and placed on existing floor or at
desired level by crane and hoist line.

Step-2
Form assembly Is then moved and placed into exact
position by movable dollies.

Step-3
Form assembly is adjusted to correct height and attached
firmly with other modules.
Reinforcement steel is fixed and electrical, mechanical and
plumbing work is done.

Step-4
Form assembly support systems are lowered to bring the
form down.
This process is done by the hydraulic jacks places under the
formwork.

Step-5
Then the form assembly is moved to the edge of the
support system by dollies.
Special attention on its movement has to be given.

Step-6
Form assembly tilts when about half of assembly is out of
the floor slab.
Again the formwork is hoisted to the upper level fot the
next cast.

Flying Formwork Cycle

Another variant of flying form.


Capable of providing very high speed of
construction.
Used primarily for multi- storey building (such as
residential flats, hotels, hostels, offices and
commercial buildings) construction works with
regular plan layouts and long repetitive structures.

Table Forms

operation procedure
75

After aligning the formwork, the reinforcement is tied and provisions for
other services are laid.
Concrete is poured and allowed to gain strength.

The formwork is struck with the help of jacks and without disassembly of
table form it is rolled towards the faade (exterior) of the building.
From here the table form is picked up by crane for locating it to upper
story.

PERI Table Formwork

Peri offers modular tables which are pre assembled


for immediate use.
The modules are available in four standard sizes
which allow optimal adjustment to the building. The
sizes are:
Table Module VT 200/215 x 400
Table Module VT 250/265 x 400
Table Module VT 200/215 x 500
Table Module VT 250/265 x 500
