Steel technical structure, Staad.Pro, Sap2000, Indian code, European code


Steel is the most popular material used in industrial projects, as steel has advantages which are matched with industrial projects’ targets. It is easy to strengthen steel if required without using advanced technology, it is easier and faster to erect as it can be assembled in a short period of time. It is well-matched with the function of the industrial field prospective specifically for oil and gas fields. Various type of steel structure such as Piperack, working platform, skids, equipment supporting structures etc. in industry. Equipment supporting structures is also called as steel technical structure which carry the heavy equipment’s load, small and large cylindrical vessels load of the industrial steel plant. Design codes of different countries provide engineers with data and procedure for design of the various structural components. Every country has their own design codes so that steel can be analysis and design by codes manually or by various design softwares. The main aim of the project is to identify critical loads, estimate design actions, select sections and how the economy can be achieved by using two different country codes i.e. Indian code and European code. In this project two different softwares are also used staad.pro and sap2000 for comparison between the results of two codes.
