The scope of work for this project is the structural analysis and design of an aircraft maintenance facility located in Abu Dhabi Airport, UAE. The facility is composed of a steel hangar in addition to an L-shaped concrete service building.
The concrete building, composed of a basement, ground floor and 2 upper stories, will be separated into 3 distinct structures in order to take into account the shrinkage and temperature effects straining the concrete slab with a span exceeding 100 meters.
The steel hangar has a free span of about 80 meters, with 3 main truss frames supporting the roof.
Both the steel hangar and the concrete structures will be studied and designed to withstand various loads and their effects, including wind loads, gravity loads, shrinkage effects, seismic loads, and temperature effects.
In addition to its BIM advanced features, Advance Design was quite beneficial regarding the geometrical modeling process, as well as the structural analysis and design.
During this project, Advance Design offered us a valuable and profitable experience, with simple yet intelligent and futuristic constituents.
