Shoring entire spans with falsework

If the superstructure of a concrete bridge is not far above the ground, it can be constructed cost-effectively and efficiently using falsework. Falsework is an auxiliary construction used for holding building materials and systems in shape, particularly in the field of concrete bridge construction. On multispan bridges, the superstructure is mostly cast a section at a time using a single falsework construction.

Conventional Shoring

  • the bridge span is shored with falsework that transfers concrete loads into the subsoil
  • this temporary structure props the incomplete supporting structure and gives it its shape
  • the shoring for a complete span requires a full-area foundation
  • economical for limited number of cycles and repositioning processes
  • special geometries and very tight radii can be formed and formwork of this kind can deal with steep longitudinal or transverse gradients

Heavy Shoring

  • High-strength, three-dimensional shoring structures are easy to build, they carries heavy loads in a very wide range of site applications, for example on infrastructure projects and on power-plant builds.
