The newest publication from the TCA is the third in a trilogy of resources covering the architecture, engineering and construction of tilt-up. Engineering Tilt-Up contains basic engineering principles and code interpretation as well as in depth analysis of a tilt-up structure and its components. The thorough guide breaks down tilt-up design to educate beginners as well as experienced engineers. Authored by Timothy W. Mays, Ph.D., P.E. and Joseph J. Steinbicker, P.E., S.E., Engineering Tilt-Up contains 325 pages of completely new content.
According to Mays, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., “The organization of the chapters making up the main body of the text are ideal for engineers just beginning with tilt-up or for seasoned tilt-up engineers looking for excellent example problems that focus on the latest codes and standards such as the 2012 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-10.”
In addition to the chapter material, Engineering Tilt-Up features three, full-building design examples presenting simplified standard practice approaches to design on realistic yet complex situations and constraints that are considered on actual projects. “Adhering to the latest codes and standards, the book serves as a one-of-a-kind resource for tilt-up engineers looking for an excellent summary of standard practice in tilt-up and alternative ways to seek code compliance,” said Mays.
Engineering Tilt-Up is available in both printed and digital form.
