Abstract:

An engineering design study was conducted on a proposed consolidated fire station for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The goal of the study was to design a specific after examining alternate methods of construction and different building materials. Six functional floor plans were considered in the design. The floor plan selected was analyzed using six different structural schemes. A single story design with a drive through capability was selected using a combined steel frame with load-bearing and non load-bearing concrete masonry walls. A variable volume air conditioning system was selected for installation in the station on the basis of economy. A perimeter circulating hot water heating system was designed. Hot water will be generated for the heating system by a heat exchanger using stem from a base central heating plant. Solar energy was considered as an energy source but was found to be uneconomical. A complete electrical design was accomplished using 208120 volt power supplied through a 150 KVA transformer. An emergency electrical system was incorporated into the electrical design which will use a 30 KW Diesel generator with an automatic start and load transfer capability. The deisgn provides for a fire detection system and an intercom system within the station.
