Critical design parameters for garages

Rudolf Eger

Abstract

The acceptability, usability, and economic success of garages depend on the quality of their design. Only minimum or even lower requirements are often applied. Problems most frequently encountered after the start of operation are: two spaces needed for one (bigger) car, scratches on cars and pillars, and long queues at entrance/exit. Main design parameters for garages are analysed in the paper: manoeuvrability in parking spaces and lanes, column grid, headroom, slopes and curves of ramps, garage floor slopes, and waiting time at garage entrance barriers.
