The lower 40-foot container is an entry check point office. An oversize LCD screen is mounted at the upper 40-foot container.
RFEM was used to create the complex finite element model of the container structure, consisting of various surface elements and member sections. SHAPE-THIN was used to build custom shapes for the container member cross-sections. Due to the unique shape of the container structure configuration, RWIND is used to generate accurate wind loads with 360 degrees at 45-degree increments. The steel design check of the steel structure was performed using the RF-STEEL AISC add-on module.

Plate girder is an economical choice for long spans construction. I-section steel plate girder typically has a deep web to maximize its shear capacity and flange separation, yet thin web to minimize the self-weight. Due to its large height-to-thickness (h/tw) ratio, transverse stiffeners may be required to stiffen the slender web.
