A WWII-era hangar located on JBER Air Force Base has been repurposed as a crash rescue facility. The existing trusses do not meet current code requirements and are not sufficient for desired roofing and insulation upgrades. This study analyzed the existing trusses and designed a new support system to bring the existing structure up to code.
