RE: Verification test

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
		As a plant-cast precaster, tilt-up is a dirty word, but we think that "bed 
 suction" is about the same as the weight of the panel. So a crane will exert 
 20,000# momentarily to free a 10,000# panel from the casting table. Therefore, 
 the crane operator tries to lift one edge first so he's only exerting 10,000# 
 to lift half of a 10,000# panel. Lots of texture on the form is assumed to 
 increase suction. Is that what you're after? Jim Getaz

OK, here's one.  What's a good (design) value for face loads on a tilt up 
panel at liftoff from the bed/slab?

Fellow engineers,

         I think people are lonely because there hasn't been much activity 
on the list lately.  To tell the truth I've missed the activity too.

         "Maybe it's time for bill P. to start a political dixcussion for 
interest sake.  The relative merits of Donald Trump sounds like a safe but 
controversial subject," he said with tung-in-cheek.
