Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to advance the science, art, and technique of using components in the construction of contemporary structures in contrast with individual piece-by-piece construction still generally characteristic of today's construction methods. Its goal is an advanced engineering technology resulting in better organized and more beautiful structures with rapidity and economy of construction. The thesis presents an analysis of the use of large manufactured components in the construction of contemporary structures. Many of the components under study may be used in industrial, commercial, public, and residential construction while some of the components may have only a limited application. (Author)
