There was an organization called 
"The Concrete Tilt - Up Institute"
they put out a manual at one time that
had the various formulas used in the 
design of the panels. 

You were expected to do them by longhand
at that time.

If I find the manual I'll get you the number
or maybe someone else will know of them or
their successor.
