What is minimum cover for cast on site Tilt up Panels on site?

What is minimum cover for cast on site Tilt up Panels on site?

The UBC 97 clearly states that it is 1" for tilt up walls But in the current ACI-318-11, it seems to be vague, is it 3/4"? The walls are cast on site and not at a plant. Also where is this in the CBC-2013 or ACI 318-11?

RE: What is minimum cover for cast on site Tilt up Panels on site?

Site cast tilt-up is usually considered the same as precast, so ACI 318-11 7.7.3 would apply. Also see ACI 301-10 Table - these are the same requirements as in 318.
