RE: Verification test

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have always thought that the difference in the approach to analyzing tilt-up 
 vs. precast stripping stresses was interesting.  Of course most precasters 
 strip vertically and tilt-up is literally rotated into place.

		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?
