Three different research projects to investigate critical loads on formwork are described. The overall goals of the projects described in this article are to develop and implement real-time load and deflection monitoring instrumentation for buildings during construction, to develop an improved understanding of critical construction loading conditions, and to develop guidelines for safe construction practices specifically associated with multistory reinforced concrete construction.
