Slipforming is a method of construction that is used to build tall structures. Different types of systems are used to make different structures. Slipforming allows for a continuous pour of concrete that create structures without joins or flaws.

There are many reasons why the slipform  technique remains popular in construction. But the main ones are, firstly, the technique saves a lot of time and expenditure ie it is a pretty fast method of constructing tall structures; secondly, there is smoothness and uniformity in a long concrete structure constructed using slipform. Along with tall structures, other structures like caisson,bridges and tunnels can be constructed smoothly and efficiently using slipform. Thus it is quite versatile.

Description: Slipform Construction technique plays an important role in the construction of tall structures like sky scrapers, chimneys, water towers and steel tanks. There are three main types of slip form technique: traditional, conical and gantry. The above infograph shows how slipform technique is used in the construction of various structures.

This is a beautifully made info graph. It talks about four applications of slip form constructions in a simple ,easy to understand manner.
