Title:Seismic Response of Tilt-Up Construction
Author(s):Carter, J.W., III; Hawkins, Neil M.
Subject(s):Tilt-up construction
Earthquake engineering
Abstract:Tilt-up construction is an economical method of constructing low-rise industrial and commercial buildings. However, the structures are susceptible to seismic damage. The seismic response of tilt-up construction is reviewed in this report. Construction techniques are described, design procedures are summarized, the results of previous experimental and analytical research are compared, and observed damage during recent earthquakes is discussed. The measured response of three tilt-up buildings in California is also presented.
