    Abstract

    An introduction to spaceframes and skylights and use of building seals and sealants and glazing systems to accommodate architectural and structural movement systems in the design process.

    This is an introductory treatise on the design and installation of spaceframes and skylights, which addresses their aesthetic and economic feasibility, and the importance of teamwork within the construction industry regarding their successful implementation.

    This manuscript also addresses the importance of building seals and sealants and building codes and design standards, and their role in technological innovations and design development of spaceframes and skylights. ASTM quality control test methods and specifications utilized in the selection of materials and components for spaceframes and skylights to provide safeguards against water infiltration are referenced.
