Abstract – Expansion joints are the gaps in the building structure provided to allow for the movement of the building due to temperature changes. They are provided commonly in the structures of slabs, bridges and other structures where there is a change of expansion of the structure due to temperature. Significance of these joints are mainly to control the uneven surface in the structure when it is subjected to temperature changes. In present scenario the designers of the buildings are not considering expansion joints while designing a multi storied structure. Consideration of expansion joints in the design can reduce the temperature stresses and displacement of R.C. framed structures. In this view studied the effect of expansion joints in structural behaviour of RC framed regular and irregular structures. For this purpose considered four different types of RC framed buildings (C, T, L and Rectangular) in each case compared the lateral displacement and quantity of steel by considering with and without expansion joints by using computer software STAAD Pro.
