Note: Methods for calculating rotational demand on elements of tilt-up panels with openings can be found in Explanatory Notes to CSA Standard A23.3-04 published by Cement Association of Canada. The seismic performance of tilt-up buildings depends not only on the performance of the concrete wall panels, but also the performance of the roof structure and the connection between the wall panels and the roof. Only the design of the concrete wall panels is within the scope of this standard.
