STAY IN PLACE FORMWORK SYSTEM

Duration 8 Minutes 

In this film, three different Stay in Place formwork systems, evaluated and recommended by the Building Material and Technology Promotion Council for mass housing   have been explained which are Structural Steel Stay in place system (Coffor), Double wall EPS panel system and Insulated concrete formwork. Many new formwork systems have been developed, amongst which Stay in Place Formwork Systems have many advantages. After concrete pouring and hardening, this type of Formwork systems remain in place as an integral part of the structure and contribute to the structural integrity, durability and even aesthetics of concrete elements. 

PREFABRICATED CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION

Duration 9 Minutes 

This film presents Precast or Prefabricated concrete Construction System in which majority of structural components are standardized and produced in controlled environment at a factory or manufacturing site in a location away from the proposed building and then transported to the site for assembly. Precast RCC framing elements such as columns, beams and stairs are used to form the framed structure. The reinforced precast solid slabs for floors and roofs may be of normal weight or light weight concrete. Other RCC precast elements such as shear walls, lift shafts, service ducts are integrated into the frame Skelton depending upon seismic design demand, height and configuration of the structure.

MONOLITHIC CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION

Duration 8.30 Minutes 

This film explains Monolithic Concrete Construction system which is a cast in place monolithic reinforced concrete structure system of high quality with rapid construction cycles. The systems enables to cast walls, beams, columns, stairs and slab of concrete in one continuous pour. The structure is designed as RC load bearing shear walls and slabs. Monolithic casting of slabs along with RC walls results in a box type structure, which is very strong in resisting horizontal forces due to wind and earthquakes. This engineered formwork system is designed based on the drawing of the structure and manufactured in the factory. The formwork system has emerged as one of the accepted emerging technology for mass housing. In spite of some limitations, which can be overcome easily with proper planning, this construction system brings speed, quality and durability and economy in construction. Such systems are key to meeting the demand for efficient, Sustainable mass housing. 

LIGHT GAUGE STEEL STRUCTURE SYSTEM

Duration 8 Minutes 

This film explains Light Gauge Steel Structure System in which Light Gauge Steel Sections are formed in cold state from galvanized steel sections of thickness usually ranging from 1 mm to 3 mm. Galvanizing of the preformed coil provides satisfactory protection against corrosion in extreme environments. The system is based on erection of a base structure, by assembly of factory made cold formed galvanized light gauge steel sections and subsequently fixing of panelling materials to form walls and floors with/without insulting materials. It is a well established technology for residential construction in North America, Australia and Japan and is now gaining ground in India because of its versatility and suitability for range of lighter load bearing applications. 

EPS BASED PANEL SYSTEM

Duration 9 Minutes 

This film presents the EPS based Panel System which is basically  based on factory made composite panel consisting of combination of self-extinguishing polystyrene corrugated / plain sheet and required  thickness, sandwiched between two layers of  engineered sheet of  high strength galvanized cold steel wire mesh inter connected to each other with high strength steel connectors. The main function of the core is to provide thermal and sound insulation and its thickness and type depend on its thermal resistance and design temperature. The truss formed with the galvanized wires gives the desired structural strength to the panel. The EPS panels are manufactured in different types depending upon the application. The EPS Technology is in use in many countries under different forms and brand names.

RAPID AFFORDABLE MASS HOUSING USING GFRG WALL PANELS

Duration 3.30 Minutes 

The films explains the Glass Fibre Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) Panel system which is also branded as Rapidwall, a building panel product, made of calcined gypsum, plaster, reinforced with glass fibers, for Mass-scale building construction The panel, manufactured to a thickness of 124mm under carefully controlled conditions to a length of 12 m and height of 3m, contains cavities that may be unfilled, partially filled or fully filled with reinforced concrete as per structural requirement. GFRG panel can also be used advantageously as in-fills (non-load bearing) in combination with RCC framed columns and beams (conventional framed construction of multi-storey building) without any restriction on number of stories micro-beams and RCC screed (acting on T-beam) can be used as floor/ roof slab.
