I am researching tilt-up construction methods for several designs currently on my desk. I am planning on using a high-volume fly ash (ASTM Class F) reinf. concrete (56% replacement of portland), with which I have had some good experience already, and whose properties I like. I have successfully designed ICF walls, but have never actually done a horizontal tilt-up placement. I have searched the threads in this forum, and have checked out the FAQs and done a search, but this would seem to be a new topic. This is not a common type of technique yet in my area. After several hours unsuccessfully searching the WWW, I am coming up blank. Does anyone know of any references that deal with Tilt-Up design in particular? For example, anchor placement, connections for double wythe construction, proven methods of exterior wall treatment for architectural effect, etc.? I do not mind inventing a wheel - but it's silly to try to re-invent one.

Simulation is an increasingly valuable tool across the product design workflow, but not all simulations are equal. We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.
