What is meant by Striking Formwork | Removal of Formwork | Minimum Period

Tunnel Formwork Removal - Anti infiltration concrete tunnel formwork system

What is Striking Formwork? The process of removal of formwork or shuttering in the process of casting concrete is known as striking. Once the concrete has achieved the initial recommended strength, to support the self-weight and any imposed loads, the shuttering is removed for further curing. Soffit forms are usually left in place for longer … Read more What is meant by Striking Formwork | Removal of Formwork | Minimum Period
