ESTIMATE MATERIALS FOR A WALL FORM
Critical Task: 051-199-4014
In this lesson, you will learn to estimate material for each of the five components needed to construct a
wall form for concrete. You will estimate the amount of sheathing, the number of studs, the number of
wales, the amount of bracing, and the amount of tie wire.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE:
You will complete a material estimation for sheathing, studs, wales, bracing, and
tie wire. You will compute the amount of material needed to construct a wall
form for concrete.
You will be given the material contained this lesson.
You will correctly answer practice exercise questions at the end of this lesson.
The material contained in this lesson was derived from the following publications:
FM 5-34, FM 5-426, FM 5-742, STP 5-12B1-SM, and STP 5-12B24-SM-TG.
One of the basic skills in carpentry is the ability to estimate the amount of materials needed to construct
a wall form for concrete. A carpenter must be able to determine the amount of materials needed to
ensure that enough materials are on hand to complete the project. In this lesson, you will be shown how
to compute the amount of material needed to build this structure.
