Mechanical Analysis and Optimum Design of Universal Panel Construction Formwork System
The mechanical analysis of a novel plywood formwork structure with steel frame was studied with finite element method systematically. By optimizing the parameters of the section shape, node position and the number of formwork heel, a kind of the optimization design scheme was presented. Less building construction materials and better mechanical property was accomplished by the scheme. By contrasting the optimization results with experimental results, the design method is valuable.
