Abstract The overall goal of this project was to measure the vertical and lateral loads experienced by the shoring system of a reinforced concrete building under construction and to use the measurements to evaluate and improve shoring system design codes so that future construction site collapses can be prevented. The development and use of this shoring instrumentation was proposed to have four main phases: Design, develop and verify the load-monitoring instrumentation; Conduct field measurements; Analyze data; and Produce applications, guidelines and recommendations.
