This title provides advice on provision, specification and construction of joints in concrete construction. It aims to help structural designers and other members of the design team make informed decisions about the provision of joints in concrete structures, and to assist those responsible for the construction and supervision of joints. It covers both movement joints, which are intended to relieve potentially damaging stresses or strains, and construction joints, which are necessitated by practical limitations on the amount of concrete that can be poured, compacted and finished in one operation. The user is guided through the various design and construction issues associated with joints. Of particular importance are the successful exclusion of moisture where necessary, the filling and sealing of joints, and the preparation of construction joint surfaces to ensure satisfactory performance.
