AbstractJoint movements between precast concrete panels were measured on a high-rise building. The movements were correlated to air temperature changes and were statistically evaluated. An experimental coefficient of movement was calculated from the slope of the regression line and the dimension of the panels and was compared to the published linear coefficient of thermal expansion of concrete.
