French term or phrase:jonit de retrait ou de rupture
This is about concrete.
Can the two joints be translated as " deformed joint"? What is " joint de rupture"?
Explanation: contraction joint: A weakened plane to control the cracking that naturally occurs due to the expected volume change as concrete sets
isolation joint: Coupure disposée en vue de mouvements ou de déformations provenant soit de causes accidentelles, par exemple d'un inégal tassement des fondations, soit de causes normales.
