tilt panel lifting inserts

tilt panel lifting inserts

Does anyone have any recommendations, on a program they have been using, to quickly analyze tilt panel stresses during the lifting process?

RE: tilt panel lifting inserts

I believe EnerCalc does this.

RE: tilt panel lifting inserts

The tilt-up contractor usually submits detailed lifting calculations prior to construction (as a shop drawing). There programs are very specific to the task. Maybe you can get in touch with one of the tilt-up contractors for some insight.

RE: tilt panel lifting inserts

That is what I figured, insert manufacturers like Burke have developed their own software for lifting. I tried PCA wall but it took too long to set up each model. I also was limited in modeling the base reaction to points along the bottom of the panel, instead of a continuous line support. We have been specifying the insert locations as part of our "design package" for a while now. It becomes very tedious. Enercalc works off of a strip of panel with a base and roof reaction, and it only gives stresses in one direction.
Does anyone know if RAM software would be capable of modeling a conc. plate like this?

RE: tilt panel lifting inserts

RAM Advanse has a shell modeler, however I found it rather  difficult to set up my model.
