Control joint The term 'Control joint' as it applies to the area of reclamation can be defined as ' Control joints are joints placed in concrete to provide for control of initial shrinkage stresses and cracks of monolithic units.

Control joints will transfer moment, but will not transfer shear unless keyed'.
