These trucks, when full, can exert high loads and pose a risk to the slab’s serviceability. An acceptable compromise involves filling the truck only partially when driving over the slab-on-grade. The extent to off-load the truck depends on various parameters including slab, soil, and vehicle properties. For large-scale warehouses and distribution centers, tilt-up construction is the preferred option from a cast-and-schedule standpoint. These buildings tend to have multiple repeatable elements and connections, so all stages of a given project tend to roll at a brisk pace.
