CONTROL JOINTS FOR CONCRETE MASONRY WALLS ... -

When materials with different movement properties, such as concrete masonry and clay masonry, are used in the same wythe the movement difference needs to be accounted for in the design. Normally, joint reinforcement is used in the common joint between the two to distribute the forces and keep any cracks that form tightly closed.

NCMA Control Joints for Concrete Masonry - Monocouche

2020-11-25  When control joints are required, concrete masonry only requires vertical control joints. When materials with different movement properties, such as concrete masonry and clay masonry, are used in the same wythe the move-ment difference needs to be accounted for in the design. Normally, joint reinforcement is used in the common joint between the two to distribute the forces and keep any cracks that form tightly closed. Another option is to provide a horizontal slip plane between the two materials to accommodate the differential movement. See Clay and Concrete Masonry

CONSIDERATIONS FOR USING SPECIALTY CONCRETE

Joint reinforcement in concrete masonry can be used to provide crack control, horizontal reinforcement in low seismic categories, and bond for multiple wythes, corners and intersections. Most requirements and rules of thumb for joint reinforcement are based on a specific area of reinforcement per foot of wall height and assume an 8-in. (203-mm ...

CRACK CONTROL IN CONCRETE MASONRY WALLS - NCMA

When the composite wall includes a clay brick wythe bonded to a concrete masonry wythe, ladder-type joint reinforcement, or box ties are used to provide some degree of lateral movement between wythes. In addition, expansion joints are installed in the clay brick wythe to coincide with control joints in the concrete masonry wythe.
