Design Guide for Tilt-Up Concrete Panels
|Publication Date:||1 August 2015|
Tilt-up concrete buildings have been constructed in North America for over 100 years, but it was not until the late 1990s that ACI 318 specifically addressed the requirements for design of slender concrete walls. ACI 318-11, 14.8, provides a method of analysis and covers only the basic requirements for evaluating the effects of vertical and transverse out-ofplane loads. ACI 318-11, Chapter 10, may also be used to design slender walls, but the requirements are more general and should be applied with discretion.
This guide expands on the provisions of ACI 318-11, Section 14.8, and ASCE/SEI 7 and provides a comprehensive procedure for the design of these structural elements. This guide also provides design recommendations for various support and load conditions not specifically covered in ACI 318, and includes design guidelines for in-plane shear.
