Research on Tilt-up Building System and the Key Technology

Jiankang Liu, Jinling Gao, and Tian Peng
Abstract—Derived from Tilt-up construction in North America, Tilt-up Building System conducts shear transfer through roof bracing and connecting support instead of roof skin, which makes design methods more complied with the national code. In this paper, the force transfer system of Tilt-up Building System is firstly introduced. Then a simulation with Sap2000 is performed and both of the deformation property of Tilt-up Building and stress characteristic of wallboard are obtained. Subsequently, design of Tilt-up wall is studied and a new wallboard form, Tilt-up wallboard with fixed constraints at the bottom and hinged constraints at the top, and corresponding design methods are proposed. Meanwhile, a simplified method of wallboard hoisting analysis is demonstrated. Finally, conversions of wind load and earthquake effect between Chinese code and American code are executed and a visualization procedure based on VB platform is developed.

Index Terms—Tilt-up building system, tilt-up wall, wind load, seismic effect.
