What is Shoring?

Vertical or inclined support members designed to carry the weight of the formwork, concrete, and construction loads above (ACI 347.2R-05)

What is Reshoring?

Shores placed snugly under a stripped concrete slab or other structural member after the original forms and shores have been removed from a large area, requiring the new slab or structural member to deflect and support its own weight and existing construction loads applied before the installation of the reshores. If prefabricated drop-head shores for slab formwork systems are used, the shores can become the reshores if a large area of shoring is unloaded, permitting the structural members to deflect and support their own weight. If they are not, then they become backshores. (ACI 347.2R-05)
