Journal titleBuilding Note
AbstractBuilding components, large or small, must be assembled to produce the whole building with each component having a joint between it and each adjoining component. This is true in both conventional and prefabricated construction. The major differences between these methods of construction are that the larger the component, the greater is the differential movement at the joint and considerably less lineal footage of joint. The joint is normally the weakest link and the success of building with prefabricated components depends on the success of the joints.
