The structure of the very large building is designed in such a way as to integrate and support the lifting equipment used for the assembly of the airships.
The base of the FAH constituting the main paving will integrate, in addition to the rails of the railway tracks, all the technical equipment necessary for the operation of the site, in perfect synthesis with the process of Flying Whales. We believe that the use of this paving could be rationalised by pooling other functions in order to limit the impact of construction (natural cooling, storage of rainwater, etc.).
Beyond the mastery of large complex structures, the development of such an industrial site is largely based on the design of the main doors. We have specifically developed solutions for this project that are adapted to this use, in particular through the design of large motorised textile doors inspired by the principles of origami diaphragms.
The tools for modelling and calculating the resistance of materials have enabled us to come up with conclusive dynamic numerical simulations that can be perfectly transposed into this project.
