RE: Verification test

	Matthew,
		That's right about stripping precast, though vertical precast members are 
 rotated into place, too. It just happens after they've been stripped, had 
some work done on them (like grit-blasting or other finish applied, etc.), 
sitting around in a yard, and taking a road trip on a trailer. ;-) Jim Getaz

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.

	Thor,
		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
