Abstract
In multistory reinforced concrete (RC) building construction, the early-age concrete slabs with partial strength and formwork consist of a temporary supporting system which carries all loads for a given construction plan by contractors. The construction schedule and supporting system must be designed properly for safely erecting buildings. There is a need to balance safety and economy in the design process. This study focuses on developing practical design guidelines for the supporting system in multistory building construction.
