  • 18. Concrete Joints • Control joint- an intentional linear discontinuity in a structure or component, designed to form a plane of weakness where cracking can occur in response to various forces so as to minimize or eliminate cracking elsewhere in a structure. Isolation joint- a joint such as an expansion joint, between two adjacent structures which are not in physical contact.

  • 40. Radiant Barrier • Is a material that is installed in buildings to reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss, and hints to reduce building heating and cooling energy usage.
  • 41. Rebar • The surface deformation help create a tighter bond with the concrete.
  • 42. Steep Roof Drainage • Gutter- a narrow channel which collects rain water from the roof of a building and diverts it away from the structure. • Down spout- a vertical pipe for carrying rain water down from a gutter. • Splash block- a small masonry block laid with the top close to the ground surface to receive roof drainage from down spouts and to carry it away from the building
