Dazzling Array of Architectural Treatments Using Formliners and Color Stains

September 28, 2019 from 7:00am to 8:00am

Marquis Ballroom D

Dave Ellis

The design and construction industries are starting to take notice of the significant benefits realized when one uses tilt-up concrete with formliners and colored stains. Owners and builders are enjoying savings in cost and time, as prefabricated tilt-up panels with architectural finishes can be ...

Designing Floors with Joints

September 28, 2019 from 9:30am to 10:30am

M103-105

Dirk Van Cauteren

When designing floors with joints, load transfer capacities and the reduction of load capacity at joints and at the slabs’ edges are not fully realized and accounted for, not even in the most prominent floor slab industry guides throughout the world. This presentation gives an overview of l...

Structural Integrity Provisions for Tilt-Up Construction

September 28, 2019 from 10:30am to 11:30am

M103-105

Joseph J. Steinbicker, PE, SE, FTCA

It is now widely accepted and codified that tilt-up concrete panel construction is considered site-cast pre-cast. As such, the structural integrity provisions of the American Concrete Institute’s “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete” (ACI 318-14) apply. The detail...

Practical Applications of Nonlinear Static Analysis to the Seismic Design of Tilt-Up Structures

September 28, 2019 from 11:30am to 12:30pm

M103-105

Timothy Mays, PhD, PE

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 esta...

Performance Linear Elastic Design using Based Modulus of Rupture Testing

September 28, 2019 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm

M103-105

Luke Pinkerton

While “structural plain concrete” is used throughout the concrete, it could contain components specifically designed to increase the modulus of rupture of the concrete. ACI 322 developed the basic approaches in the 1970s. There has been little work in this area since. There have be...

Speed, Performance, Economics: The New Approach for Braced Frames in Tilt-Up Construction

September 28, 2019 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm

M103-105

Tom Liu, PE

Bryant Cunningham

Buckling-restrained braces (BRBs) have dramatically altered the landscape of tilt-up warehouse construction by offering significant advantages in cost, speed of erection, and performance. They also eliminate the need for support columns that are often used at the intersection points of traditiona...

High-Strength Welded Wire Reinforced Tilt-Up Panels

September 28, 2019 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm

M103-105

Philip Kopf, PE, FTCA

The use of grade 80 welded wire reinforcement in tilt-up panels is becoming the go-to choice for many designers and contractors. During this talk, we will explore the value and benefits of this welded wire reinforcement in the tilt-up market. We will cover the process of converting to this produc...
