The first report by the committee, based on a survey of construction loads from above. Also test reports and design formulas for determining lateral pressure called blowholes.

The major result of this study and centering—specialized temporary support used in the report was the development of a basic formula establishing construction of arches, shells, and space structures where the form pressures to be used in the design of vertical formwork.

Two subsequent revisions, of the structure. ACI R and ACI R, were committee reports climbing form—a form that is raised vertically for because of changes in the ACI policy on the style and format succeeding lifts of concrete in a given structure. ACI returned the guide to the standard- diagonal bracing—supplementary formwork members ization process.
