Doha Airport – Elevated Roadway Canopy
The Elevated Road Canopy is a steel structure which has overall plan dimensions of about 70,2 x 9,9 m.
The main structure is a sequence of steel cantilevers that support a glass roof cover linked to a secondary steel structure of WT structural sections.
Each steel cantilever consists in a vertical column (tapered built-up box section) from which continues a curved beam (tapered built-up box section). The “horizontal” jib is the portion of the cantilever that carries the secondary steel structure. The glass panels are supported by the secondary steel structure.
