Nowadays large panel building construction is universally used technology because it is cost-cutting and the easiest way to build quickly erectable structures. The objective of research was to define the way to develop panel structures by evaluation of Russian and English articles concluding achievements in multistory housing construction. Also to find out merits and demerits. During the research were examined structures of panel buildings. The results of study show that joint is the weakest part of modern large panel buildings, so the further study is required to improve joints. The most suitable way to calculate joints is to do computer simulation for example in Lira 2017.
