Lateral Pressures for Formwork Design: A Review of the Formulas to Determine the Pressure of Fresh Concrete

In form design, fresh concrete pressure assessment is needed for vertical form surfaces. The author presents different formulas for determining pressure, including a basic formula, a wall form pressure formula, and a column form pressure formula. More information can be found in the 7th Edition of "Formwork for Concrete" (ACI SP-4) as well as through spreadsheets available online at's Concrete Knowledge Center.
