Temporary Structure Design

A comprehensive guide to temporary structures in construction projects Temporary Structure Design is the first book of its kind, presenting students and professionals with authoritative coverage of the major concepts in designing temporary construction structures. Beginning with a review of statistics, it presents the core topics needed to fully comprehend the design of temporary structures: strength of materials; types of loads on temporary structures; scaffolding design; soil properties and soil loading; soldier beam, lagging, and tiebacks; sheet piling and strutting; pressure and forces on formwork and falsework; concrete formwork design; falsework; bracing and guying; trestles and equipment bridges; and the support of existing structures. Temporary structures during construction include scaffolding, formwork, shoring, ramps, platforms, earth-retaining structures, and other construction structures that are not part of the permanent installation. These structures are less regulated and monitored than most other parts of the construction process, even though they are often supporting tons of steel or concrete - and the safety of all workers on the site depends on these structures to perform as designed. Unfortunately, most tragic failures occur during construction and are usually the result of improperly designed, constructed, and/or maintained temporary structures. Temporary Structure Design fills an important need in the literature by providing a trusted, comprehensive guide to designing temporary construction structures. Serves as the first book to provide a design-oriented approach to the design of temporary structures Includes coverage of the various safety considerations inherent in temporary structure design and construction Provides information on estimating cost and schedules for these specialized structures Covers formwork and falsework, as well as personnel protection, production support, environmental protection, and foundational structures
If you're a student or a professional working in the field of construction or structural engineering, Temporary Structure Design is a must-have resource you'll turn to again and again.

Temporary Structure Design

Chapter 1
Statics Review

1.1 Statics Review

In construction management and civil engineering programs, students are required to take statics and strength of material classes in preparation for their successor. The successor might be a generic "structures" course, a temporary structure course, or maybe no successor course at all. Whichever direction the curriculum goes, the basics of statics and strength of materials is the common denominator.

This book has been written under the assumption that the student has a background in statics and strength of materials and these skills only need to be refined. Temporary structures utilizes many of the less complicated aspects of statics and strength of materials, so even if the student did not master the two prerequisites, he should still be successful in the subject matter of this book. In addition, temporary structure design is a very practical subject, and the student should be energized to see that the challenges that this book covers are real construction situations that the student will experience for his or her entire career.
1.2 Units of Measure

At the time of this writing, local and state projects in the United States continue to use the English "Imperial" unit system (feet, pounds, etc.). While most of Europe and the rest of the world use the metric system, the United States has resisted this movement. Even the California Department of Transportation, which had converted current and future projects to the Imperial system of measures late in the 20th century, has gone back to using the Imperial system in the early 21st century. Since England has also gone to the metric system, their "English" Imperial system is now referred to as the U.S. units. Because this text has been written for students in the United States, examples will be given in U.S. units only. Table 1.1 shows most of the common units of measure used in this book.
