Critical Task: 051-199-4014

In this lesson, you will learn what materials to select and the procedures necessary to design a

wooden form for a concrete wall. This step-by-step process is presented in a step-by-step manner

in this lesson.

ACTION:

You will learn to design wooden forms for concrete walls.

CONDITION:

You will be given the material contained in this lesson.

STANDARD:

You will correctly answer the practice exercise questions at the end of this

lesson.

The material contained in this lesson was derived from *Field Manual*

REFERENCES:

It is very important that you, as a carpenter, learn the processes involved with the designing of

forms for concrete walls. The first step is to learn the different names of the various components

of wooden concrete wall forms. This will enable you to determine what type and size of

materials to use and where to place the specific members. The next step is to become an expert in

determining the spacing of each of these supporting members. This will enable you to design a

concrete form that will successfully handle concrete during the placement and set period.

1. Like other construction tasks, designing concrete forms requires the use of a basic tool--

mathematics. If used skillfully, mathematics will help you to complete this task.

2. Before you start the subcourse lesson, perform a short review of the various types of math

problems that you will encounter. If you know how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide and are

familiar with mathematical operation symbols, you will proceed through this lesson without any

difficulty. On the other hand, if you have trouble, be patient. Examples explaining each problem

are included in this lesson. Just follow the directions, keeping in mind that you learn best by
