ACI 318 -Construction Joint

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello everyone
ACI 318-99 Code 6.4.4 described for construction joint as follows;
" Construction joints in floors shall be located within the middle third of spans
  of slabs, beams, amd girders."
1. Code dose not provide any exception for this requirements?
   ("shall be" - mandatory requirements)
2. If construction joint  was not located within the middile third of spans
  of slabs, beams, and girders, how can I evaluate the structural
  integrity and acceptance of construction joint location ?
Thanks in advance,
Yangsoo Kim
