Abstract

CFS system of which can be used in the field of low rise residentials, are included in industrialised building systems due to installation principles of the system. Widespreading of the usage of an industrialised building system depends on the widespreading of the system design datum. Therefore, education of CFS system design is required in order to increase the system usage. Also, awareness of CFS system in the levels of public authorities and technical staff can be increased by education. The aim of this paper is to develop an education model for CFS system design by using open building concept. The system design education is being executed on the limited number of layout types by using the system catalog. The education model can be used by undergraduate students of architectural and civil engineering departments and graduate architects and engineers whom interested in CFS systems. Prefabrication principles and open building concept are being used in education of CFS system design. Distinguishing of design, fabrication and installation is only possible with definition of common conventions which can be used in different levels. Structural component types are limited and catalog datum are defined by getting help of the experience of furniture and toy industries, such as İkea and Lego, scaled model of machines. The industrialised building systems as NEN in Netherland, ACC and Solfege in France and BES in Finland are distinguishing designers and structural component producers by defined common conventions and limited number of components in conformity with open building concept.

Definition of Common Conventions for Education of CFS System Design

CFS system of which can be used in the field of low rise residentials, are included in industrialised building systems due to installation principles of the system. Widespreading of the usage of an industrialised building system depends on the widespreading of the system design datum. Therefore, education of CFS system design is required in order to increase the system usage. Also, awareness of CFS system in the levels of public authorities and technical staff can be increased by education. The aim of this paper is to develop an education model for CFS system design by using open building concept. The system design education is being executed on the limited number of layout types by using the system catalog. The education model can be used by undergraduate students of architectural and civil engineering departments and graduate architects and engineers whom interested in CFS systems. Prefabrication principles and open building concept are being used in education of CFS system design. Distinguishing of design, fabrication and installation is only possible with definition of common conventions which can be used in different levels.
