Tilt-Up Panel to Footing Connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I haven’t had a plans reviewer ask me why my tilt-up panel foundation 
detail does not include a mechanical connection at the footing but does at 
the slab-on-grade in so long I don’t even know where the latest IBC 
section is that relates to this exemption if no uplift forces exist. Can 
someone point me to the proper IBC exception that allows panels to be 
physically connected to the slab-on-grade only and not the footing?
