Abstract:Structural requirements, system used, and details for a 130-ft precast clear-span hangar, 160 ft long, are described. An unusual requirement was that the whole of the superstructure could be disassembled and re-erected at a different location. This led to the adoption of a structural system utilizing bents made up of precast members. Important structural details, method of erection, and full scale test loading data on one bent are also considered in addition to cost figures for the structure.
