1. What are the importa[ces of ioinls in precast structures

lvhen compared to cast in situ structurcs? In cast in situ stt.ucture\ lhc joints drc provided to relieve the strcsscs due to temperature and shrinkag.e and also to accommodate, the construction sequence for placement of concrete. But in case of precast structures apart from the a bove reason we require iolnts to conncct various olernents oIstrrrctures.


What is the need for expansion ioint in precast structures? (May/lune ZOlZ) Expansion joints are necessary in precast structures in order io attow for the expansion and cooling ofvarious members due changing in temperature. ln precast s-tructures the shrinkage takes place before the assembling of members, therefore the spacing of cxpansion ioints may be 1.5 to 2 times grelter than in monorithic structures. Expansion ioints are usualiy Formed at the joint ofroofing members and main girders.

3. What are connectio\s? (May /lune 2012) In precast members to overcome operational difficulties the member are disunited into smalier elements. Connections are used to get required structures by joining thc scpJrJte smaller elements.


What are the different types of connections? 'fhere are tvvo types ofconnectiorls i. Wet connections (with mortar or in situ concrete] ii. Dry connections ( with welding and boltingl


What are the points to t e considered while designing the connections? l. l,oading under working condition ii. Stability of str.uctures ii i. l,oad conditions during construction iv. Illfcct ofshrinl(age, creep and temperature Unequal settlcmcnts.

Based on location within a buildin& how conncctions can be classificd? Based oll localioll within a building conncctions arc classified into vortical and h orizontal joints. Vertical ioints connect the-vertical taces of adlolning wall panels and primarily resist vertical seismic shear forces. Horizontal joints connect the horizontal faces of the adjoining wall and floor panels and resist both gravity and seismic loads.

lO.What are the functions or importance of ioints? (May /lluJ)e 2OO9) Joirrts between internal and extcrnal wall pancls shJll be designed to resist the forces acting on them without excessive deformation and cracking. They shall also be able to accommodate the deviations in the dimensions of the wall panels durrng produclion and erecrions 11. Define

12.What are the requirements ofioint!, (MAY/IuNE 2009, 2012)

. .

. .

Thc forming and construction ofjoints requires greatly increased control. The dcsign and construction of joints should normalise with the materials used.

Joints must be designed and executed to cnsurc dimensional tolerance. n rel.rtive displacement ofthe joint member should be impossible.

15.What is meant by expansion ioints? {May,/lune 2013} Expansion joints allow expansion and contraction of a member without generating potentially damaging forces within the member itself or the surrounding structures. 16.State post tensioned connections. (Nov/Dec 2013) PosL tensioned connections can gencrally be joined for simpler than the usual reinforced coDcre[e structures. ln post tensioned structures the forming of joints does not cause difficulties. ln this all the joints are course rigid and moment bearing,
