Design curves are presented for examining the height limitations of residential buildings constructed of prefabricated large panel components. Assuming most frequently encountered values for both gravity and wind loads and using commonly accepted design criteria for allowable stresses and wind drift, the maximum building height is determined for a number of geometric parameters for typical floor plan configurations.
