Deformation of concrete in building structures: the distance between joints djoint

Eurocode 2 part 1-1: Design of concrete structures   2.3.3 Deformations of concrete

The consequences of deformation due to temperature, creep and shrinkage shall be considered in design. However, in building structures, temperature and shrinkage effects may be omitted in global analysis provided joints are at every distance djoint to accommodate resulting deformations.


The recommended value of the distance between joints djoint is 30 m.
