11.20.14 | Tilt-Up Eats Hurricanes for Breakfast - Five Things Every Engineer Should Know When Designing Tilt-Up Panels

For centuries, structural engineers have been combatting the effects of Mother Nature—from hurricanes, to earthquakes to large snow falls. In recent years, building owners and the community at large have even joined the fight, as more resilient, sustainable structures are demanded. Based on the ACI 551 Tilt-Up Design Guide, this webinar will explore how engineers can capitalize on the advantages of tilt-up construction to provide safe, durable structures that withstand the worst Mother Nature can throw at them. During the webinar, participants will learn five important design aspects associated with tilt-up panels. The session will conclude with an example that incorporates these design elements for a building subjected to hurricane-level wind.
