Try "Construction Planning, Equipment and Methods" by Peurifoy published by McGraw-Hill. There's a Chapter on Formworks showing wet concrete lateral pressures.

Does anyone have any information on the lateral pressure produced by wet concrete?  I assume it must vary depending on how wet it is (ie a slurry would produce a larger lateral force than a stiff mix).
