CHAPTER 1: ABSTRACT
Formwork is used to hold the concrete in any structural element before hard it. The weight of the wet concrete is higher than the dry concrete. Therefore the formwork should be strong enough to carry the load of the wet concrete. So also formwork should be free of voids and concrete or grout should not be going out from the formwork. So also it should be straight enough to maintain the shape of the structural element and can be withstand against the vibration of the equipment used. Therefore the form work is very important in the concreting works.
“Doka” formwork is used as the formwork of the rectangular columns and walls of the building and steel formwork is used as the formwork in the circular columns of the building. Before fixing the columns and walls formwork reinforcement need to be well positioned and cleaned. If steel are corroded it is need to wire brushed those bars. To have a proper construction joint the slab or kicker should be hacked out and need to remove the grout from the top surface of the concrete. Then all the grout and rust should be removed thoroughly using the vacuum and water in order to provide a proper bond with concrete. After getting approval for the reinforcement and hacking of the concrete take the formwork panels cover the reinforcement to provide the formwork for the column or wall. Then using the jacks and thread bars the formwork were properly fixed. Then using the plumbs formwork makes vertical in both four direction. In this case it is need to have two plumbs for a direction. In the verticality inspection each and every column and wall were checked before concreting for verticality. So also need to check the size and the positioning of the formwork. To do that they used the marking that marked by the survey team. In the circular columns contractor used steel formwork and due that the shape of the column is not change as normal formwork.

Safe system of works will then to be place to control the risk. The identification of the hazards associated with staging and false work, the risk control measures will documented.
Emergency and Rescue Procedure
The contractor will ensure that, in the event of emergency, adequate arrangements made to ensure the safety of workers and other persons on site. The emergency may result from an accident or injury, landslip or other potentially dangerous occurrence. The contractor will plan for such matters and ensure that appropriate control measures are in place.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
The use of PPE to control hazards and risk is the lowest on the hierarchy of control measures. Control measures selected from the highest level possible and adopted where practicable. The measures at the lower levels are less effective and they require frequent reviews of the hazards and system of work.
PROVISION OF PPE
Before commencing any works, the main contractor and/or sub-contractors will identified any conditions likely to affect the health and safety of persons. If other means of control measures are not practical, the provision and used of appropriate PPE that follows HSE regulations will be arrange. Employee will be train so that they are competent. There will be sufficient supervision and monitoring conducted to ensure compliance.
The contractor has an obligation to take reasonable care for the health and safety of the other persons in the place of work and to cooperate with their employer in the interest of health, safety and welfare. Employees will use appropriate protective equipment for the work performed.
RESULTS AND CONCLUSION
The results of this project is not fully shown as it is confidential and still in progress, but some of the result is taken for author to get some idea on how the installation of formwork process. Relevant parameters, -procedures, equipment used, and-quality controls are also addressed in-order-to achieve a better understanding on how a construction develop. This construction-was not the only-aspect to take-into consideration, as the results of the quality control, safety, health and environment were-also important elements for a better characterization-of the problems-that may arise in constructions site.”
CHAPTER 2: INTRODUCTION
Formwork is a temporary structural system, which provides the casing and supporting to the wet concrete to get the required shape. It should be stabled with the weight of the concrete, reinforcement, and other live loads during the construction and compacting of concreting.
After constructing the formwork for columns it is necessary to check for correct verticality before concreting.
For small scale formworks a simple center plumb can be used to check the verticality.
Figure 2 : verticality check using a center plumb
Two center plumbs and a steel tape is required for this process. Center plumbs were hanged at two positions in the same plane with a known distance of 150 mm measured from the inner surface of the plywood sheet(or steel formwork). The distance from the plywood sheet to the thread of the center plumb is measured using the steel tape at both top and the bottom of the form work.
Calculations for a plywood formwork is as follows.
Offset distance from the column edge = 150 mm
Plywood thickness = 12 mm
Distance between the plywood and the plumb = 150 – 12
= 138 mm
If the verticality of the column is accurate the distance between the plywood and the center plumb thread should be 138 mm everywhere. Jack supports or locking systems of the formwork can be adjusted to obtain the correct vertiality in case of a mismatch.
2.1 Background of study
Vertical shortening in tall buildings would be of little concern if all vertical elements shortened evenly. However, vertical elements such as walls and columns may shorten different amounts due to different service axial stress levels. With height, the differential shortening may become significant and impact the strength design and serviceability of the building. Sometimes column transfer or other vertical structural irregularities may cause differential shortening. If differential shortening is not addressed properly, it can impact the serviceability of the building. This paper takes the perspective of a structural engineer in planning the design, predicting the shortening and its effects, and communicating the information to the contractor.
2.2 Problem statement
The main cause of vertical shortening in tall buildings is the compression of vertical elements under the load they carry. This is known as elastic shortening. In reinforced concrete buildings, creep and shrinkage of the concrete cause additional shortening of vertical elements beyond the elastic shortening. Foundation settlements and deflections of structural transfers technically are not shortening, but they may contribute to the perceived shortening of vertical elements. Their effects should be considered where appropriate.
CHAPTER 3: OBJECTIVE
Setting out is the establishment of marks and lines to determine the position and level of the elements from construction project so that works may proceed with reference to them.
The new structure must be correct in all three dimensions both relatively and absolutely.
I.e. at correct level, size, plan and position.
Once setting out begins it must proceed swiftly with little delay so that costs can be minimized.
Techniques used to achieve these aims are based on three general principles.
Horizontal control points must be established within or near the design area.
Vertical control (bench marks) must be within or near the design area.
Accurate positioning techniques must be adopted to establish design points from horizontal and vertical control
3.1 Scope of work
Important Considerations in Setting Out.Recording and filling information, booking etc. for easy accuracy.
Care of instruments; check instruments before work commences and at regular intervals.
Maintaining accuracy, design points must be set from the control network and from other points to avoid cumulative errors.
Regular site inspections, to detect missing pegs i.e. a peg may be disturbed or replaced without the surveyor being informed, control should be permanently and clearly marked and protected.
Error detection – Apply independent checks *N.B – Nothing is gained hiding errors; therefore errors detected must be corrected at an early stages.
Communication on site – Lack of it cause errors, the surveyors need to understand what needs to be done before doing it.
Setting out in General
Methods used for setting out are generally simple but difficulties are often inaccurate there are no hard and fast rules but there are a few general factors that must be observed i.e. complete checking of your work. Where closing errors cannot be determined, a peg must be coordinated from at least two points using independent data.
Setting Out of Detail Points.Basic Tasks
Setting Out of a point
Setting Out of a line
Prolongation of a line
Setting Out of Angles
Setting out of lines disturbed by obstacles.
The most commonly used methods are
Orthogonal co-ordinates (Offsets)
Intersections (Angle of Intersection 30o <<150o)
Linear Intersections (ties)
For Vertical Control the basic tasks are:
Transfer of height
Setting out a horizontal line.
Setting out a gradient line.
Setting out a contour line.
The methods used are
Projected heights (e.g. in Mining Surveying)
Trig HeightingThe Use of grids
Many Structures consist of steel reinforced steel columns supporting floor slabs. These columns are usually at right angles to each other. Setting out is generally facilitated by the use of a grid where the grid interactions define the positions of columns.
There are three main types of grids.
Survey Grid- this is the rectangular co-ordinate system on which the original topographic survey is carried out and plotted i.e. the National System or local system.
Site grid- this defines the position and direction of the main building lines of the project. In order to set out the sight grid it may be convenient to translate the coordinates of the sight grid to those of the survey grid.
Y =Y + Y1Cos-X1Cos
Where = relative rotation of the two grids.
Y, X = difference in Y and X of the respective grid origins.
Y1, X1 = Coordinates of the point on the sight grid.
Y, X = Coordinates of the point on the survey grid.
Structural Grid- This is used to locate the position of structural elements within the structure.
We have three main methods.
Using a plumb-bob
In low-rise construction a heavy plumb-bob (5 to 10 kg) may be used as shown in Figure 4. If the external wall was perfectly vertical then, when the plumb-bob coincides with the centre of the peg, distance d at the top level would equal the offset distance of the peg at the base. This concept can be used internally as well as externally, provided that holes and openings are available.
Using a theodolite
If two centre-lines/ at right angles to each other are carried vertically up a structure as it is being built, accurate measurement can be taken off these lines and the structure as a whole will remain vertical. Where site conditions permit, the stations defining the ‘base figure’ (four per line) are placed in concrete well clear of construction (Figure 5(o)). Lines stretched between marks fixed from the pegs will allow offset measurements to locate the base of the structure. As the structure rises the marks can be transferred up onto the walls by theodolite, as shown in Figure 5(b), and lines stretched between them. It is important that the transfer is carried out on both faces of the instrument. Where the structure is circular in plan the centre may be established as in Figure 5(d) and the radius swung out from a pipe fixed vertically at the centre. As the structure rises, the central pipe is extended by adding more lengths. Its verticality is checked by two theodolites (as in Figure 5(b)) and its rigidity ensured by supports fixed to scaffolding.
The vertical pipe may be replaced by laser beam or auto plumb, but the laser would still need to be checked for verticality by theodolites. Steel and concrete columns may also be checked for verticality using the theodolite. By string lining through the columns, positions A -A and B – B may be established for the theodolite (Figure 6); alternatively, appropriate offsets from the structural grid lines may be used. With instrument set up at A, the outside face of all the uprights should be visible. Now cut the outside edge of the upright at ground level with the vertical hair of the theodolite. Repeat at the top of the column. Now depress the telescope back to ground level and make a fine mark; the difference between the mark and the outside edge of the column is the amount by which the column is out of plumb. Repeat on the opposite face of the theodolite. The whole procedure is now carried out at B. If the difference exceeds the specified tolerances the column will need to be corrected.

Using optical plumbing
For high-rise building the instrument most commonly used is an auto plumb (Figure 10.16). This instrument provides a vertical line of sight to an accuracy of ±1 second of arc (1 mm in 200 m). Any deviation from the vertical can be quantified and corrected by rotating the instrument through 90° and observing in all four quadrants; the four marks obtained would give a square, the diagonals of which would intersect at the correct centre point.
A base figure is established at ground level from which fixing measurements may be taken. If this figure is carried vertically up the structure as work proceeds, then identical fixing measurements from the figure at all levels will ensure verticality of the structure (Figure 10.17).
To fix any point of the base figure on an upper floor, a Perspex target is set over the opening and the centre point fixed as above. Sometimes these targets have a grid etched on them to facilitate positioning on the marks. The base figure can be projected as high as the eighth floor, at which stage the finishing trades enter and the openings are closed. In this case the uppermost figure is carefully referenced, the openings filled, and then the base figure re-established and projected upwards as before. The shape of the base figure will depend upon the plan shape of the building. In the case of a long rectangular structure a simple base line may suffice but T shapes and Y shapes are also used.
Controlling Grading Excavations
Excavations must be controlled in the construction of sewers, roads and pipelines. Site rails and travelers are used to control the gradient of excavation. Site rails consist of horizontal timber crosspiece nailed to a single upright or a pair of uprights.
Used for road construction and small diameter pipes.

Control stations are subject to deformation they must be checked by measuring distances between them.
Figure 9: Relative monitoring
Measure d1 @ time t1, measure again after some time t2. Building is monitored by checking target at A.
Control stations are considered error free i.e. they are not subject to movement. Deformation can be checked by measuring changes in coordinates and distances.
Examples of structures.Large dams
Tall multi storey buildings
Causes of Deformation
Inadequate slope protection.
Planning the survey
The essential requirement of deformation survey is long term planning
Factors to consider.Control points should be inter-visible from at least two other points.
They must be anchored on rock or at least they must be deep enough so that they are unaffected by surface movement.
They should be sufficiently marked and protected to prevent being damaged
For the control points, there is Horizontal control and vertical control.
The methods for each form of control is as follows:
a) Horizontal – Precise traversing
b) Vertical control- Precise levelling
At all stations, a minimum of two arcs must be taken. Whether fixing points by triangulation or traversing. The normal system of observation is employed i.e. closing on to the initial station at the end of each round.
ARC = FL and FR || FL= One round || FR=One Round.
Make horizontal observation when refraction is least ( early morning and late afternoon)
Vertical observations @ midday when vertical refraction is least.Distance Measurement
Can be measured using E.D.M units. Measurement s must be made in both directions and a mean calculated. As with most E.D.M units the best weather conditions are when the day is cool. Measure in both directions (A to B and B to A). Apply the necessary correction after measurements.
Choice of Instruments.The choice of instruments depend on the accuracy needed to detect deformation movement.
Where triangulation provide the main system of control i.e. for large dams a Wild T3 can provide the required accuracy. For small surveys, a universal single second theodolite is sufficient e.g. Wild T2. This can be used in towns where the main method of fixing points is by traversing.
These instruments must be tested for any residual errors.
This should be made of high quality steel with millimetre graduation. They should be standardised and their weight per unit length known. If the quality of the tape is suspect, it must be checked against a standard tape.
Any modern precise automatic level can be used. An important feature in precise levelling is that invar staves with double scales are used (one scale on the left, one on the right). Levels should be tested for collimation error.
The best method for computing deformation observation is by using least squares and this method is suitable if a computer is available. Whichever method is chosen, the same method should be used each time the points are re-fixed.
CHAPTER 4: LITERATURE REVIEW
4.1 Literature Review
CHAPTER 5: METHODOLOGY
Methodology is the systematic, theoretical analysis of the methods applied to a field of study. It comprises the theoretical analysis of the body of methods and principles associated with a branch of knowledge. Typically, it encompasses concepts such as paradigm, theoretical model, phases and quantitative or qualitative techniques. A methodology does not set out to provide solutions – it is therefore, not the same as a method. Instead, a methodology offers the theoretical underpinning for understanding which method, set of methods, or best practices can be applied to a specific case, for example, to calculate a specific result.
It has been defined also as follows:
“the analysis of the principles of methods, rules, and postulates employed by a discipline”;
“the systematic study of methods that are, can be, or have been applied within a discipline”;
“the study or description of methods”.
5.1 Methods and Tools
Methods to Control Verticality of Structure during Building Construction Methods used to check or control verticality works include:
Plumb-bob as shown in Figure 2 consist of a weight with pointed tip on the bottom attached to end of a string. The heavy weight will hang under gravity and offer a precise vertical line which is called plumb line.
Figure 10: Plumb-Bob Tool
This method is applied for checking or controlling vertical line of structural elements especially indoors such as lift shaft. Added to that, it is used to control verticality of foundation, walls, and columns.
Figure 11: Checking Verticality of Structural Elements
Figure 12: Checking Verticality of Columns
The plumb line or vertical line of plumb-bob is influenced by wind force and it will lose its accuracy and precision. Small to moderate lateral movement of plumb-bob can be reduced satisfactorily by damping it in oil or water.
If the height of structural member is large, then it is possible to replace the string with a long wire, but substantial cautions should be plasticized so as to avoid imposing risks to the personals working below.
Spirit Level Method
This tool is appropriate for controlling verticality of small scale works for example checking formworks and door frames. If spirit level is employed for approximate checks, then it is required to check the verticality with more accurate technique.
Figure 13: Spirit Level
Theodolite is substantially powerful instrument which can be used to check verticality works during construction with great precision and accuracy.
It is suitable for checking or controlling verticality of towers as shown in Figure 8, wall, foundation and columns as shown in Figure 9; specifically large number of columns along a one grid line.
It is possible to measure the slope of out of plumb line of the member by using Theodolite in combination with a tape.
The procedure used to check column verticality includes:
Setting up the digital Theodolite centered on a peg that installed 500 mm from the column grid.
After Theodolite set up accurately the laser beam will be turned on and focused it to the steel tape which is held to the formwork.
Take the reading of the steel tape through the telescope.
Take the readings of two positions at the same level on both top and bottom levels of the formwork. By taking two readings at the same level any curvature on the surface can be identified. These steps are illustrated in Figure 9.
Figure 14: Checking Verticality Using Theodolite
Figure 15: Checking Column Verticality Using Theodolite
Optical Plummet Method
It is an instrument that sight directly down or directly up. Optical plummet has an automatic compensator which increases its accuracy significantly compare with other methods used for controlling verticality.

CHAPTER 6: RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
6.1 Results and Discussion
CHAPTER 7: CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This Student Industrial Project (SIP) Report is written based on my findings, activities and internship project throughout the 12 weeks of industrial training period in SMC Global Engineering. My internship period started on 14th May 2018 and should be end by 17th August 2018. This inscribed report is the summary of the assignment and assignment given with the Host Company’s background information.
Working experience here gives many advantages to the interns and Host Company as well. Internship program with SMC Global Engineering have exposed to me a lot of things especially on site project and widened my view for my future career. These last few months of my internship have been very exciting for me. SMC Global Engineering has offered me opportunities to learn new things and improved my skills.
UTP has taken the correct measure by introducing the structured Industrial Project Program to expose students to real working environment. The requirement to keep log book, submit a final report, prepare final presentation, lecturer’s visit and student’s assessment further strengthen the objectives of the program. Log books and final report demonstrate students’ ability to record and review every aspect of the internship program.
Through my internship at SMC Global Engineering, I gained valuable working experience that will help me to succeed not only with the company but in the real world as well. My internship experience has provided me with in valuable, real-life experience that I can look back on for years to come. SMC Global Engineering has offered me opportunities to learn and develop myself in many areas such as widened my view to read construction drawing and get involved with on-site works. This give me chances to find out which areas I want to pursue after completing my studies.
There is a big difference in ways to complete the college projects in actual works. In class we learn how to describe the work in projects, where in work you learn how to implement them in reality. This internship was definitely an introduction to the actual work field for me.
In a nutshell, this Industrial Project Program has been a wonderful experience so far and these 12 weeks have improved my knowledge to a whole new level. The remaining of this internship program is anticipated to widen the knowledge further creating a well-rounded student at the end.
7.2.1Recommendations for Internship Company
SMC Global Engineering provides good learning platform for interns and it helps interns to improve and develop their skills. I would recommend SMC Global Engineering to keep hiring interns with different educational backgrounds too in order build repo with other universities.
A structured internship program is useful for student in order to expose and prepare them for their future working environment and enlighten on the path they want to choose.
7.2.2Recommendations for the University
These are a few recommendations, which in my opinion would ensure students make the best out of their Industrial Project program:
The internship unit should provide a scope of works of Host Companies for their students. This could be prepared by compiling the scope of works based on experiences of previous trainees in the Host Company.
The internship unit should also provide a list of UTP Supervisor earlier, so that students can discuss with them on matters related to the program.
