Varieties of deformation seams differences

Types of deformation seams: advantages and features

Depending on the purpose, the deformation seams are divided into temperature-shrink and sedimentary.

 Temperature and shrinking seams should cut a reinforced concrete building or structure over the entire height to the top of the foundation. These sutures are designed to ensure independent deformation of the parts of the structure in the horizontal direction. In the general case, the distance between the temperature-shrinking seams in reinforced concrete structures is set to calculate. For structures from conventional reinforced concrete, as well as for preliminary tense structures of the 3rd category of crack resistance, if the distance between temperature-syncolor seams does not exceed the value of the SNiP-V installed SNi. 1-62, it is allowed to calculate the temperature and the shrinkage is not to be made.
