Concrete Structures Inspection: Forms and Falsework Erection Mobile App

The Concrete Structures Inspection: Forms and Falsework Erection mobile app is designed primarily for highway construction inspection personnel, but it can also be used in training other personnel. This app concentrates on the inspection of incidental concrete structures, but many of the basic concepts and methods also are applicable to concrete pavements and major structures. Because of the wide variety in types and designs of concrete structures, the concrete inspector should be thoroughly familiar with all the contract documents as they provide the specific materials requirements, dimensions, and other details that distinguish an individual structure from others. The Contractor is responsible for designing and constructing the forms and falsework for fixed-form concrete work, but they must meet certain requirements. You don’t have to use the default settings to name your submissions. GoCanvas allows you to customize them.
