An Overview of Concrete Forming Technology

Reinforced concrete is, by a large margin, the most widely used building material on earth – by mass, we use as much reinforced concrete as every other material combined. One reason for this volume of use is concrete’s versatility – because concrete is placed as a liquid, it can be used to form structures of virtually any size and shape. Placing concrete thus requires some way of forcing the liquid concrete into the shape that you want it to take. This is traditionally done with concrete molds called forms or formwork [1]. Liquid concrete gets poured into the formwork, it solidifies [2], and the formwork is removed, leaving behind solid concrete in the shape of your structure.
