Traditional form for concrete pouring in the slab of girder bridge is timeconsuming and requires a lot of manpower. In addition, there are safety problems when installing and removing the forms, and damage of materials which lead to an increase in cost. SMART form Purlin support system developed to solve these problems is to install a support in the upper flange of girder to support the forms of slab. However, the complicated support structure of forms resulted in various problems including increased production and transport costs and decreased use on site owing to the lifting method. To supplement such problems, SMART form Purlin hanging system was developed. The purpose of this study is to develop a form system for concrete pouring in the slab of girder bridge. In addition, it is to check whether the formwork cost is reduced when SMART form purlin hanging system is adopted through a cost analysis by comparing with the Traditional form.
