Abstract:
A suggestion for a modular system of precast concrete trusses is developed. The trusses can be used for civil and industrial buildings and bridge construction. Each module uses six basic precast elements that can be fabricated for different strengths. Elements are connected by steel plates welded to special embedded steel devices. Using a small number of basic elements suitable for mass fabrication can lead to important cost savings.
