Technology and Application Prospect of Tilt-up Construction in China
Tilt-up is a method for constructing concrete wall rapidly and economically without formwork. A large number of tilt-up structures have been constructed in North America and other developed countries, and it will also be an acceptable term for new rural construction in China. Tilt-up process can reduce the cost of labor and materials in wall construction. With the application of the recycled concrete in tilt-up construction, which is being researched in the Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture, tilt-up building can be has a larger benefit obviously in the suburbs and rural area. With the benefit of both techniques, the paper finally introduces the application prospect in China.
