Many accidents have taken place due to failure of formwork and scaffolding on various construction sites. The book entitled "Formwork for Civil Engineering Construction Works" is an attempt to stress the need for proper planning, safe design and construction practices of formwork, shoring, underpinning and scaffoldings used in construction industry. This is the first book in its category in India which is meant to educate comprehensively the civil engineering students as well as practicing engineers about latest materials, design procedures and methods of erection for formwork and scaffolding under different conditions. Slip form technology is a new innovation in this field and it has been covered in detail in chapter-6 of the book. A large number of figures and photographs make the book easily conceivable to the learners.
