Cyclic joint movement is considered to be one of the primary factors leading to premature sealed joint failure. Several investigations have identified the causes and nature of cyclic joint movements in typical cladding panel applications, and the amount and frequency of the measured movements were greater than previously anticipated. This chapter reviews studies and experimental techniques that have been used to ascertain the effect of movement on sealed joint performance. The chapter is divided into two sections; the first section reviews the effect of movement on joints following sealant cure. The chapter concludes with a brief overview giving trends and recommendations for future research.
