In this thesis, the fracture tests and structural analysis were performed on a series of temporary scaffolding to investigate the variation of strength and the safety of temporary scaffolding. The specimens were of height 270cm and width 50cm and their span was 120cm. The joint loading and member loading were used in the tests, respectively. In these tests, the fracture mode of temporary scaffolding, relationships between the loading and the flexural strain of the specimens were observed. According to the comparison between the test results and the structural analysis results, the effects of the vertical loads and horizontal loads on temporary scaffolding and the safety of temporary scaffolding were studied.
