Engineering Tilt-Up: (Part 2) Building Example - Appendix A

71 minutes | 1.5 PDH/LU

Select example calculations from the full building design example given as Appendix A are presented and discussed in detail. Analysis methodologies unique to tilt-up are considered.

Limit Design of Tilt-Up

Limit Design of Tilt-Up

60 minutes

In this session, Dr. Mays discusses limit design used in tilt-up structures. The economic benefits of limit design (i.e., overall steel reduction and less stringent prescriptive seismic detailing) are coupled with increased structural reliability related to the seismic performance objectives e...

Pitfalls of Alternative Design Approaches

Pitfalls of Alternative Design Approaches

In most engineering firms tilt-up wall design is done by one of three methods: hand calculations, spreadsheets or similar calculations developed in-house, or using commercially available software. Once established in an office, the underlying assumptions of these methods are often used for some ...

Project Dylan

Project Dylan

47 minutes | 1 PDH/LU

Project Dylan is a new prototype fulfillment center. The warehouse building has an approx. footprint of 700,000 SF slab on grade and another 1.95 million SF of elevated deck. The exterior is clad with 330,000 SF of insulated tilt-up panels. The panels are non-load bearing for gravity but as a VE ...

The Best of the TCA Cyber Round Table

44 minutes | 1 PDH/LU

The TCA Cyber Round Table has become THE trusted resource for TCA members to get their urgent technical questions answered by a community of tilt-up industry experts in design and construction. In this presentation, David and Erik will review the best questions submitted to the Cyber Round Table ...

The Facts About Welded Wire Reinforcement

The Facts About Welded Wire Reinforcement

NEW 53 minutes | 1 PDH/LU

This presentation explores the value of using welded wire reinforcement in tilt-up construction. Participants will learn the differences and similarities between conventional rebar and welded wire reinforcement. They will learn how welded wire reinforcement solves the time, quality and cost parad...

Tilt-Up Panels On Shim Pads - Wall Footing Trim Bar Design

Tilt-Up Panels On Shim Pads - Wall Footing Trim Bar Design

NEW 33 minutes | 1 PDH/LU

This seminar presents the design of foundations for loads imposed while panels are being erected on shims or grout pads, as well as the control of cracking in panels during this construction condition. This can govern the design of the foundation for shallow footings or heavy panels. Panel cracki...

What's Next When A Bad Break Happens?

What's Next When A Bad Break Happens?

NEW 97 minutes | 2 PDH/LU

Consistently in industries like tilt-up construction, the concrete cylinder is misunderstood. Specified as a regular measure of quality control, their value and the importance of proper procedures are underestimated. Invariably, things can and will go wrong with a cylinder break…what happe...
