Program description:

This presentation explores the concepts and key considerations in the design and construction of site cast concrete wall panels for vertical construction. This method of construction is used frequently in commercial and multi-family residential structures throughout the southern and western United States and into western Canada. However, engineers and contractors in the northeast United States have been slow to adopt this economical method of construction. By applying standard concrete design principals and integrating proven fabrication, erection, and connection details, engineers and contractors can help building owners save time and money by casting the wall panels that will make up the building envelop on site and erecting the building structure in a matter of days. Site cast concrete avoids the common hassle of sizing precast panels for highway transport. It also provides for a safer working environment when compared to standard masonry as the fabrication of the walls is done at ground level. The author covers the basic principles and proposes several proven design details that any engineer can take and use in the design of their next concrete tiltwall project.
