6(d)]. Such inserts can transfer tension or shear forces between connected members. An analysis of connections of linear elements is included in Refs. [11, 14, 15] and other sources. It was already noted that linear precast concrete framing systems are similar in nature to their steel counterparts. They can transfer heavy loads over large spans and allow a considerable freedom in utilization of free space between columns. They must be used, in most buildings, in conjunction with other spaceenclosing or space-dividing elements—built onsite or prefabricated.

Many building activities which are still performed manually must first be mechanized and only then can they be automated. The decision of whether to mechanize/automate a building activity, and to what extent, should depend on a feasibility analysis—the expected benefits of the change vs. the additional costs to be incurred. In this book we will examine the general nature of automation in building and then focus our attention on the merits of an industrialized automated system which employs automation in the production of building elements in the prefabrication plant and in performing the remaining works on site.

The resulting weight of 300–400 kN is within the limit of what heavy mobile cranes can handle at the minimum reach required for erection, namely, 10–15 m. Modules produced from lightweight concrete can be slightly larger. The three-dimensional modules can contain more finish works than other prefabricated forms. The systems that employ them can therefore fulfill, better than others, the ultimate objective of industrialization —a maximum saving of human labor onsite. However, they also suffer from several limitations.
