Poster Abstract

Reconstruction of Hangar Q, located at the Millville Airport in New Jersey, required structural design improvements and cost estimation. The DRBA, Delaware River and Bay Authority, is seeking assistance with this project and has asked Rowan University to provide design recommendations. Steel reinforcing plates were designed to support structurally deficient members of the roof truss, while reinforced concrete piers were designed for the overall structure. The structural frame of Aircraft Hangar Q at Millville Airport is made up of nine steel trusses. Each three hinged-arch steel truss consists of two double-arc half trusses of 23 panels. Originally, Hangar Q had 9 concrete buttresses to support the loads of the structure, these were deemed structurally deficient and were redesigned with reinforcing steel to prevent shear and lateral failure. An updated and refined cost analysis was completed for the chosen design alternative. Cost estimation included demolition, materials, equipment, and reconstruction of Hangar Q. C&S Engineers, Inc. originally proposed four separate cost estimates in 2007. These estimates were revised based on updated unit price costs and quantities. Continued development of preliminary design drawings for steel trusses and concrete piers for the chosen alternative will be worked on for the remainder of the semester.
