Abstract:

This report presents the design of a prefabricated, panelized wood building system capable of housing a large percentage of facilities required in the Theater of Operations. Configurations of the building structural system include 24-, 36-, and 48-ft 7.3-, 10.9-, and 14.6-m widths and 8- and 12-ft 2.4- and 3.7-m eave heights. Optional components include raised wood and concrete floors as well as modifications for temperate, tropical, and desert climates. This report also presents the results of a field test on a foamwood panelized building system conducted at Fort Rucker using military personnel. The result indicates the competitiveness of the system in comparison with AFCS Facility 3403 up to 40 percent reduction in labor requirements can be reached. Author
