Erecting a 300-ft Span Roof Truss Without Shoring

The double hinge pick procedure is an innovative method of erecting long-span arched trusses and was used for a hangar structure at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton; Ohio.ÊThis session will focus on the erection design and process; showing how the three segments were ground-assembled at each of two end pins and hinged up by a special truss lift frame before the keystone piece was then installed.
