Construction loads during casting of concrete

C.l Construction loads for profiled steel sheeting

(1) The characteristic values of the load densities during casting of concrete on profiled steel sheeting as shuttering are given in Table C.L

Note : The loads given in Table CI represent the weight of operatives and concreting plant and take into account any impact or vibration which may occur during construction. The given values are not intended to cover excessive impact or heaping of concrete during casting, or pipeline or pumping loads. If appropriate, an additional load should be defined in the project specification.

Table C.l: Characteristic values of actions due to construction loads during casting of concrete (in addition to the self-weight of the loadbearing element and the weight of the fresh concrete)

(a) Inside any working area 3 m by 3 m (or the span length if less)

1,5 kN/m2

(b) Outside the working area

0,75 kN/m2

(2) Loads (a) and (b), as defined in Table C. 1, should be placed to cause the maximum bending moment and/or shear (see Fig. C.l).

Figure C.l: Examples of load arrangements For loads (a) and (b), see Table C.l; (c) is the self-weight of the loadbearing element and the weight of the fresh concrete.
