Theoretical and Experimental Study of Steel Props Used in Concrete Buildings

Abstract—In concrete structures molded in situ it is necessary to use temporary structures, called prop. These support the actions of the permanent loads and variable as well, while the fresh concrete becomes self-supporting. Support posts are normally made from wood or steel. Little reuse, deforestation and low productivity are the disadvantages of the wood column application, against of advantage of the low cost. On the other hand, steel column presents high productivity, time reduces and not only high reuse but also it is renewable. This work was carried out on the criteria design, experimental tests and computational simulation of the steel support post. The design criteria used in this research it’s from the Brazilian standard. The lab tests were applied in six typical size prototypes. And finally, for the computational simulation was developed one specific program called FLEP. The results show an especial care of parameter buckling in the Brazilian design criteria and the program FLEP as well, for to obtain the same result in experimental tests.

Index Terms—FLEP program, lab test of prop, steel prop.
