Expansion Joint in Building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Hi,

Just wondering the requirements for expansion joints in building--in Saudi, they require a building (50m x 100m for instance) to provide expansion joints for every 50m in both horizontal dimensions. Please advice if it is needed to separate the building into two parts including the structure below the ground--grade/tie beams. I understand, that it is needed for thermal expansion. What does other do?

TIA,
