Abstract: In recent years, the introduction of Pre Engineered Building (PEB) concept in the design of structures has helped in optimizing the design. The adoptability of PEB in the place of Conventional Steel Building (CSB) design concept resulted in many advantages, including economy and easier fabrication. Long Span, Column free structures are the most essential in any type of industrial structures. Pre Engineered Buildings (PEB) fulfill this requirement along with reduced time and cost as compared to conventional structures. In this study, an industrial structure (Ware House) is analyzed and designed by considering various types of sections using the structural analysis and design software STAAD-Pro. The sections used for comparision are hot rolled steel sections, tubular sections, pipe sections and PEB sections. The ware house is modeled with all these sections and the economy of the structure is discussed in terms of its weight, cost and degree of fabrication. A comparative study has also been carried out between cold formed sections as purlins with traditionally used hot rolled sections for industrial structures. Also the optimization in design of warehouse is done by adopting various light weight steel sections along with safety of structure.
