Tilt-Up Panel on Shim Pads Wall Footing and Panel Design

September 21, 2018 from 11:30am to 12:30pm Central Standard Time

Dallas Ballroom A3

Shane Walters, P.E.

This presentation will focus on 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 cracking due to base restraint will be explored and examples of methods/calculation to help mitigate these factors will be discussed.
