Construction joints (Pbpbhe)

Definition
Joints made necessary by a prolonged interruption in the placing of concrete. Also, temporary joints used to permit sequential construction. Or, boundaries separating sections of a concrete deck and generally watertight because of the chemical bonding of the newer concrete section to the previous section when the concrete placement is resumed.
