Fabricating Undulating Concrete Surface with #iceformwork

Author: Vasily Sitnikov

  In order to minimize the amount of cement involved in concrete constructions, the concrete industry today chooses to reduce the share of cement in the total mass of concrete. This approach leads to lower mechanical properties of concrete, resulting in thicker floor slabs and massive beams. An alternative strategy is to increase the share... watch video
