Abstract

In order to develop new, improved systems for building construction, it is necessary to evaluate the various factors related to construction methodology. This paper presents a method for generating the assembly order of building elements in wooden housing structures based on an information about the characteristics of the building construction systems such as physical considerations about the positions of building elements relative to one another, or the jointing method employed, etc. In order to derive criteria for judging the assembly order of wooden elements, 2,355 connections in three common types of building construction systems for wooden houses currently in use in Japan were surveyed. For each of these connections, dat
