Re: Control Joints in a Mat Foundation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill,
 
Control joints in a structural foundation mat with top and bottom rebar would not serve any purpose. The only joints to consider are construction joints, to be located and spaced by concrete placement considerations. The control joint spacing rules-of-thumb as a factor times the slab thickness also do not apply for the construction joints in a structural foundation mat.
