PROJECTS OF A SPECIAL NATURE The following résumé of work of a special nature done for the armed services of the United States and others gives an indication of the capacity and ability of the Strobel & Salzman organization to perform when the problems are new and unusual and when ingenuity, technical know-how, and sound judgment are required :

Peter A. Strobel invented, designed, detailed, supervised erection of test model in field, packaged for air transportation and wrote War Department Technical Manual TM5-9728 for 130- by 160-foot portable airplane hangar, catenary type, .canvas cover.

Peter A. Strobel designed, detailed, supervised erection and tests in field for 130 by 160-foot portable airplane hanger, structural steel with steel cover, fiber glass doors. Also developed complete packaging used by all prime contractors for this B-17 bomber hangar.

Peter A. Strobel designed, detailed, supervised erection and tests in field (see Engineering News-Record, October 16, 1947) for 160- by 200-foot portable airplane hangar, structural steel, steel roof, doors (for B-29 bombers). Wrote War Department Technical Manual TM5–9621 and developed complete packaging used by prime contractors. A method was developed for erecting the main 194-foot span arches, 50 foot high (without the use of standard powered erection equipment) by using a rolling tower with winches assembled from structural framing members of the hangar.
