Column Forms

A typical concrete column form (fig. 7-34) is securely braced by YOKES to hold the sheathing together against the bursting pressure exerted on the form by the plastic concrete. Since the bursting pressure is greater at the bottom than the top, the yokes are placed closer together at the bottom. Notice, in figure 7-34, that on two panels, the

yoke members come flush with the edges of the sheathing; on the other two, they project beyond the edges. Bolt holes are bored in these projections, and bolts are inserted to backup the wedges that are driven to tighten the yokes.
