Determine how many studs are required for one side of the form if the stud spacing is
24 inches and the form length is 28 feet.
28 x 12
Number of studs =
= 14 + 1
= 15 studs
Problem 19. Work the following problem to see how well you understand the concept
covered in step 15. The solution to this problem is found at the end of the lesson. Determine
how many studs are required for one side of the form if the stud spacing is 14 inches and the
form length is 24 feet.
Step 16. Determine the number of double wales for one side. Determine the number of
double wales for one side of a form by dividing the form height by the maximum wale
spacing (step 9). Wall studs over 4 feet require double wales. Compute as follows:
form height (ft) x 12 (in)
Number of double wales =
maximum wale spacing (in)
If the answer contains a decimal, round up to the next whole number. For example,
for 11.4, use 12 or for 12.7, use 13.
You must place the first wale one-half the maximum wale spacing up from the
bottom. The remaining wales are placed at the maximum wale spacings that you
previously determined (Figure 2).
