ABSTRACT
In this study, "a Meccano set" building system for mass housing in Turkey is proposed. The proposed Meccano set consists of precast slabs with an integral steel girder to form a monolithic structural slab assembly. This is known as a Meccano set by analogy with the construction toys that also include a catalogue of structural components. The types of structural components of the proposed Meccano set are determined at the first stage. After putting forward the structural arrangement and dimensional coordination principles, the mass housing plan types were analyzed. The aim of this work is to determine the number of floor types, beams and columns in order to arrive at the arrangements that minimize all of the components. The results of the comparison of alternative configurations are stated in the conclusions.
