Stability Matters--Even for Nonbuilding Structures [N24A]

The unique stability aspects of a Module Assembly Building will be examined in this session. An MAB is a single-purpose temporary structure used to facilitate the fabrication of large structural steel-plate composite modules weighing up to 1,150 tons for use in the nuclear generating plants currently under construction in the U.S. Come learn how the engineers resolved the stability design challenges of a structural system that not only provides three overhead bridge cranes that share a common set of crane rails, but also a structural system that is able to resist significant wind loads even when one of its walls is disassembled allowing for the removal of these large structural modules.
