Analysis and Design of Repurposed Steel Shipping Containers in Low-Rise Building Construction [N21]An influx of steel shipping containers in the U.S. has given rise to an up-and-coming industry of recycling, repurposing, and configuring them into useable low-rise buildings. Of course, utilizing containers as structural building blocks requires modifications to their box structure to construct a useable facility. This session will present design techniques, reinforcing details, and connection methods of several different structural configurations along with finite element analysis results of the containers themselves.
