Mr Wegg also noticed, with admiring eyes, that, while the flowery land displayed such hollow ornamentation as stuffed birds and waxen fruits under glass- shades, there were, in the territory where vegetation ceased, compensatory shelves on which the best part of a large pie and likewise of a cold joint
were plainly discernible among other solids.
There might also have been leakage due to the cold joint
that was formed by overlapping sections of liner, as well as decreased water flow due to the buildup of liners.
However, this issue is acceptable per IPC-A-610D; it is not a case of cold joint
Crews gunited the rest and installed a cold joint
to separate it from the poured concrete.
They also spray the edges of the RCC course until the adjacent lane is paved to prevent a longitudinal cold joint
. Within a few hours, transverse control joints are sawed at about 30-foot spacing (versus 20 feet for conventional concrete).
(See Engineer, July 2002, page 8) The cracks were due to the cold joint
between the flexible asphalt pavement and the rigid Portland cement patches.
The accompanying drawing depicts a foundation repair technique of vertical pinning where horizontal cracks in the foundation block and the cold joint
between the block and the mat are crossed with steel, and the cracks are pressure-injected with liquid epoxy form the inside out.
Remove the cold joint
trim away the outer skin and most of the fat, score the remaining fat with a sharp knife, first in one direction, then crosswise to form a diamond pattern.
Findings compel proposed revisions to both documents' shear-friction design provisions of a smooth interface condition, plus consideration of updates for cold joint
smooth interface conditions, leading to more accurate and economical designs.
"Pouring the patio over the pool wall creates a cold joint
in the middle of the tile, causing it to crack when the patio expands and contracts."
Quality assurance by sight only has limitations, especially when the joining surfaces have some abnormal conditions or when improper pressure causes a cold joint
