When faced with a building that has a large footprint and/or discrete bridge links within it, there will be a need to introduce a movement joint within the frame of the structure.

This technical talk covers the issues surrounding the introduction of movement joints, often referred to as ‘expansion joints’ into a building’s structure and what structural engineers need to be aware of when designing building structures that require them.

Aimed at practicing structural engineers.
