A Lot of Force (Sep 13)

UAS FH Construction Update for 10/03/2013

A lot of Force

Concrete Walls going up!  This week the Contractor completed forming up the concrete footing walls and poured 96 cubic yards on one day to complete the foundation for Residence Hall I.  The concrete wall between the commons area and Residence Hall I is 14 feet tall.  The Contractor poured this wall all at one time.  This places a large stress on the concrete forms to hold up 14 feet of concrete.  UAS math and engineering students can figure out how much pressure this is by the following formula  F = (density)(height) = (150)(14) = 2,100 pounds/sf.  Now that’s a lot of force!
