Falsework is the temporary structure which enables a permanent structure to be constructed. In his guide Chris Wilshere covers the use of Falsework in projects of all sizes from a lintel in a house wall to the construction of a major bridge. The materials used are diverse: timber, steel and aluminium are covered, as well as fabricated equipment. Concepts, design considerations and standard solutions are discussed and the importance of the quality, checking and control of Falsework is emphasized. Finally valuable checklists, which will help the reader search for potential faults, are included.
