Applications of the 40 ft expandable container house
1) Can be used as dormitory, temporary hospital, toilet, office, storage room, etc.
2) Can be installed in a short time, assembled by bolts with a high intensity;
3) Can be used repeatedly with a life span of more than 15 years .
4) With a well-sealed and reliable structure, water-proof, fire-resistant, moisture-proof and anti-corrosive;
5) With supporting facilities such as washbasin, shower, air-conditioner, socket and so on;
Technical conditions of the steel structure house
A.General Technical Condition
1)The structure can prevent the 8 magnitude earthquake.
2)The design of seismic grouping is the first group, the site characteristic cycle is considered 0.45s, the construction site category is considered by Class III, and the damping ratio of steel structure is 0.05. The maximum αmax of the horizontal earthquake influence coefficient is 0.04, which is calculated by 5 years.
3) Structural safety level is grade 2. The coefficient of importance is 1.0.
4) Conner fitting elevation plus or minus zero.
Normally,steel beams, steel columns, purlin are all used Q235B cold bending galvanized or painted steel frame
strength of steel:f=215N/m2
1.3 Loading Combination
1.Calculation of floor Loading
Structure Weight 0.4 kN/m2
Dead Load Value 0.4 kN/m2
Live Load Value 3.0 kN/m2
Structure Weight 0.3 kN/m2
Dead Load Value 0.3 kN/m2
Live Load Value 0.5 kN/m2
C.Calculation of Wind loading
According to the 15 Design durable years, the basic wind pressure of wind loading is W0=0.3KN/m2
Advantages of the prefab expandable container house :
a Strength and durability
Shipping containers are in many ways an ideal building material. They are designed to carry heavy loads and to be stacked in high
columns. They are also designed to resist harsh environments, such as on ocean-going vessels or sprayed with road salt while
transported on roads. Due to their high strength, containers may be adapted for secure storage.
All shipping containers are the same width and most have two standard height and length measurements and as such they provide modular elements that can be combined into larger structures. This simplifies design, planning and transport. As they are already designed to interlock for ease of mobility during transportation, structural construction is completed by simply emplacing them.
Due to the containers' modular design additional construction is as easy as stacking more containers. They can be stacked up to 12 high when empty
The welding and cutting of steel is considered to be specialized labor and can increase construction expenses, yet overall it is still lower than conventional construction. Unlike wood frame construction, attachments must be welded or drilled to the outer skin, which is more time consuming and requires different job site equipment.
Pre-fabricated modules can also be easily transported by ship, truck or rail, because they packed well .
Used shipping containers are available across the globe.
Many used containers are available at an amount that is low compared to a finished structure built by other labor-intensive means
such as bricks and mortar - which also require larger more expensive foundations.
Construction involves very little labor and used shipping containers requiring only simple modification can be purchased from
major transport companies for as little as US $1,200 each. Even when purchased brand new they are seldom more than US $6000.
Containers are designed to be supported by their four corners making a very simple foundation possible. As well the top four
corners are very strong as they are intended to support a stack of other containers.
A 40ft shipping container weights over 3,500KG so each time one is upcycled we are saving thousands of
kilograms of steel. In addition when building with containers, we are also reducing the amount of traditional building materials
needed (i.e. bricks and cement).
