Discover Peace of Mind for Your Aviation AssetsWhat you really want is peace of mind. As a building owner, facility manager, or fire protection professional you are responsible for maintaining a safe and productive environment. You want to be assured that your aviation facilities and assets will be protected and risk of loss is minimized or eliminated. Are you doing everything you can to promote life safety and prevent fire losses from occurring? This book shows you how.You will discover how to: - Clearly define hangar use, classification, and construction type.- Understand the options and alternatives for hangar fire protection systems.- Identify, control, and mitigate common aviation facility hazards.- Apply codes and standards for compliance.This book presents practical guidance on the four critical components that must work in harmony to ensure the protection of aircraft hangars and aviation assets - construction, systems, hazards, and codes
These assets include high value military aircraft that are maintained and repaired in high bay aircraft hangars. These aircraft are essential elements of a strategic military force whose mission is unparalleled by commercial aircraft.
The Navy and other military service branches within the Department of Defense are responsible for the fire protection of Department of Defense assets. These assets include high value military aircraft that are maintained and repaired in high bay aircraft hangars. These aircraft are essential elements of a strategic military force whose mission is unparalleled by commercial aircraft. Previously, the Navy adopted fire protection standards embodied in industry standards for commercial aircraft protection. However, over time the Navy recognized the unique considerations that should be given to protecting vital assets, and that these considerations were not adequately addressed in the standards they were adopting. The Navy identified a fundamental performance goal for its hangar fire protection systems. This goal was the installation of a reliable and easily maintained fire protection system, which prevents damage to the hangar structure and to the aircraft not directly involved in an initial spill fire ignition scenario. This resulted in a multi-year study to address all technical issues associated with meeting this goal.

Space frames provide a lightweight solution to the problem of creating large span enclosures free from obstructions. They are employed in many major constrcution projects across the world, as documented in this authoritatively written volume.This is the first in-depth book to present all instances and applications of space frames in various engineering schemes. It uses case studies and numerous illustrations to examine steel space frames from their design to their structural engineering performance.
