Aircraft Hangar/Airport Terminal Solutions

Engineering characteristics

1)Whether the airport terminal or aircraft hangar is required to have a large span, and high space requirements, the general structure is difficult to meet. Even if it does, the economic efficiency is also very low.

2)The terminal building and hangar are very high-security requirements, and the security of the general structure is low.

3)The airport terminal requires a beautiful shape, which is not easy to achieve.

4)Long construction period, difficult on-site welding and inspection, and challenging to eliminate safety hazards.

As an important connecting point to the outside of the city, the airport’s absolute position cannot be shaken in the city. The local government attaches great importance to the construction of the airport building and prefers to adopt some new structures, shapes, and unique urban cultural elements to enhance the city’s image.

Application area

14)Flight connection center      


The steel structure of the airport building is mainly used in the waiting hall and aircraft hangar.

Large-span airport terminal and station hub construction adopt more structure types:  space frame structure, reticulated shell structure, truss structure, arch structure, steel structure, etc.

The steel structure form of the waiting hall is generally a pipe truss, prestressed steel structure, space frame, etc. The auxiliary structure often uses membrane structure, formed steel structure, while the external wall uses various forms of the curtain wall. The roof is generally aluminum plate, aluminum magnesium manganese plate, etc. All building materials are generally very high-grade.

The hangar is mainly used for aircraft maintenance and repair, with a large span and higher functional requirements than aesthetic requirements. Generally use space frame structure, tube truss, a roof for aluminum, and aluminum magnesium manganese plate.

      1)BJMB structure can be easily achieved with a large span and large space.

      2)BJMB structure has multiple statically indeterminate stress characteristics and is very safe (the highest safety performance in civil and public buildings).

      3)Various shapes can be achieved.

      4)The site should be bolted as far as possible, rarely welding on-site, short construction period, controllable hidden dangers, and good installation quality.

Process description

1. Aircraft hangar design process:

The security level can be controlled at the design stage. It is generally recommended that the terminal and hangar be calculated and retained according to the highest security level, which can achieve the requirements of 50 or 100 years of useful life.

2. Prefab Aarcraft hangar production process:

If properly calculated, 95~100% of components can be manufactured in the factory theoretically, and transported to the site for installation after strict inspection.

3. Prefab aircraft hangar installation process:

Most installations are bolted, with fast installation, guaranteed quality, and fewer safety hazards. We recommend skilled workers to install the terminal, to avoid unskilled workers undertaking the main installation.
