An illustrated description of the design and con- struction practice of the Bureau of Reclamation in providing joints in reinforced concrete buildings: (I) between large power units; (2) at large changes in cross section; (3) at junctions between parts of structures on foundations of different bearing value; (4) at angles between portions of buildings; (5) where buildings are weakened by openings; (6) where con- crete placing is interrupted.
