Question
Dear Sir,
I have a raft of size 200mx200mx1.2m. How can I give pour sequence?
Why construction joints are required? Shall I cast raft at one go if possible?

Answer
Dear Venu

you will need expansion joint due to thermal dilatation. It is possible to do it continuously using lipping scafolding. It is a method to push the scafolds forward and concreting which is used in high rise cylindrical towers.
