In general, the implementation of the waffle slab could be defined step by step as follows:
Step 1: Removable Support Structure
Step 2: Waffle formwork Embedment
Step 3: Placing the Reinforcement
Step 4: Supplying the Concrete
Step 5: Formwork Removal
Step 6: Finishing up the Project
What is waffle formwork?
Waffle slab is the most technical and economical type of roofs among conventional systems. The main element in the construction waffle slabs is waffle formwork. Different companies manufacture formworks with different materials but generally there are two types of waffle formworks: one-way and two-way. One-way waffle formworks are in rectangular form with the widths of 60 or 70 cm and different lengths. two-way waffle formworks are cubes with different depth.
