Excellent information from Srinivasan as always!!

If any of the community members work, like I do, on the heavy highway/road/bridge side of the industry, the US-based company Dayton-Superior has some excellent concrete forming handbooks that I refer to quite often. There is a lot of terminology in concrete forming & framing that is unique to the installations - Their manuals provide some great guidance on all sorts of forming & framing configurations, assemblies, accessories, terminology, etc. I've provided a link (below) - Cheers!!
