Hi All,
As we all know that Code recommends us to provide expansion joint in
horizontal RCC member beyond certain limit, in view of the potential impact
of the temperature - produced dimensional changes in the Structural
integrity . I wonder what's to be done for the Vertical RCC members
(Columns). Usually we don't  practice providing such Expansion joints for
Columns, rite ? Why is it so ? Aren't the Columns (which are assumed to be
fixed at one end) subjected to thermal deformations ?
Do let me know!

Regards
Malay.
