Aluminium and Tubular Steel as Applied to the Construction of Some Recent Aircraft Hangars

A brief introduction states the proportion between structure and total building cost and considers the effect of ancillary buildings on hangar design. A description is then given of aluminium as a structural material followed by a detailed account of the design of a 200 ft. span aluminium hangar. Unusual features of three other types of aluminium hangar are then given. Tubular steel as a structural medium is discussed and illustrated by a description of a 150 ft. two way span tubular steel hangar. Conclusions are stated and a bibliography given. L.E. Ward
