CONTROL JOINTS FOR CONCRETE MASONRY WALLS—

2020-9-8  An engineered method is presented in TEK 10-3 Control Joints for Concrete Masonry Walls—Alternative Engineered Method, which is based on limiting crack width to 0.02 in. (0.51 mm), since water repellent coatings can effectively resist water penetration for cracks of this size. The engineered method is generally used only when unusual conditions are encountered such as dark-colored units in climates with large temperature changes. The provisions in this TEK assume that units used in the construction comply with the minimum requirements of ASTM C90, Standard Specification for Loadbearing Concrete Masonry Units (ref. 4) and that a minimum amount of horizontal reinforcement is provided between control joints as indicated in Footnote 1 of Table 1. The minimum area of reinforcement given, 0.025 in.2/ft (52.9 mm2/m) of height, translates to horizontal reinforcement spaced as indicated in Table 2. It is intended to provide the most straightforward guidelines for those cases where detailed volume change properties of the concrete masonry

The most common (and usually most cost effective) method of controlling cracks in concrete masonry is to use control joints in conjunction with a minimum amount of horizontal reinforcement between the joints. Reinforcement is often required for wind or seismic resistance and it is prudent to utilize it for assisting in crack control as well.

2018-7-23  Control joints are provided in concrete masonry walls to control cracking primarily from movement due to shrink-age and thermal effects. In diaphragm walls, the ribs will tend to restrict some of that movement, however, because there is currently no research to quantify these effects, cur-rent practice is to place control joints at intervals based upon either TEK 10-2C, Control Joints for Concrete Masonry Walls —Empirical Method or TEK 10-3, Control Joints for Concrete Masonry Walls—Alternative Engineered Method (refs. 8, 9).
