The use of different material quality and amount can affect formwork performance at the beginning of casting. Practical easy to install formwork such as woven polyethylene with wire mesh reinforcement makes field work easier. Sensitivity analysis on the elastic modulus and the thermal coefficient variables of woven polyethylene, fresh concrete temperature during casting and fresh concrete load model are the objectives of this research. The research is performed by comparing experimental data and the numerical modeling of woven polyethylene formwork using Finite Element Method. The formwork span and width dimension are 1 m x 0.3 m, with a variety of heights namely 0.6 m, 0.45 m, and 0.3 m. The sensitivity value for each variable will be evaluated based on Pearson coefficient or R. The sensitivity analysis of thermal coefficient showed no correlation to changes in formwork deformation. The sensitivity analysis of elastic modulus and fresh concrete temperature showed perfect correlation to changes in formwork deformation although the changes are small (around 0.0003 cm to 0.0006 cm). The fresh concrete load model showed perfect correlation to formwork deformation as well as becoming the determining variable of the changes in the formwork deformation values.
