HANGAR KOLKATTA & CHENNAI AIRPORTS
HANGAR KOLKATTA & CHENNAI AIRPORTS
Indian Airlines (now Air India) constructed new Hangars at Kolkata and Chennai Airports to house their rapidly expanding fleet of aircrafts.
The work involved the evolution of the conceptual designs, making detailed structural designs, drawings and specifications and providing technical know-how during construction. Apart from evolving the design of structural steel enclosure for accommodating aircrafts in the Hangar and integrating a contiguous reinforced concrete service building with it, state-of-art analysis and design techniques were employed to optimize the structural form and configuration taking into account the requirements of a wind sensitive structure.
HANGAR AT KOLKATTA
The scheme consists of a Hangar with clear plan dimensions of 75.25m* 73.48m, its door housing with plan dimensions of 100m* 5.27m and a three storeyed annexe building of 2300 sqm. The clear heights of the Hangar at the eaves and ridge level are 14.0m and 24.0m respectively. It was designed to accommodate simultaneously one airbus A300 and one airbus A320 aircrafts. The photograph shows the erection of the 100.0m long truss of the door housing.
