Presented by the SEAOCC Continuing Education Committee:


This program examines the movement characteristics of various types of masonry, and discusses how to successfully accommodate those movements resulting in a crack-free building. It analyzes the different sources of building movement including a material temperature changes, moisture changes, and deflection of building elements. It looks at industry guidelines for location, spacing, and width of movement joints. It examines how to handle both vertical and horizontal movements including the detailing of flashing and other elements that may be required. And finally, the program examines building code requirements for showing movement joints on the construction drawings.
