Parametric Assessment of Prefabricated Buildings (PEB) and Conventional Steel Bearings

Saurabh Nirkhe, Rushabh S. Thole, A. B. Vawhale


Prefabricated buildings are primarily prepared through the process of pre-planning and prefabrication. The advancement of the prefabricated building construction approach implies time constraints, cost efficiencies, improved structural performance, and expanded architectural insights. Prefabricated buildings become an effective replacement for traditional steel buildings in every respect. further results when comparing costs, construction time, quality parameters and architectural perspective. The main objective of the current study is to compare prefabricated steel structures and conventional steel structures in all respects. A prefabricated building was designed and then a comparative analysis was carried out in relation to a conventional building with the same configuration. The main software used for the whole design and analysis part was Bentley STAAD PRO and it was found that the prefabricated building gave more sustainable results compared to traditional steel buildings. The budget is consumed in all aspects, so the use of prefabricated buildings should be implemented, because the construction and maintenance costs of prefabricated buildings are much lower than traditional steel buildings. In this project work we compare the parametric evaluation of 120 m long and 60 m wide Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEB) and conventional industrial halls under the influence of moving crane loads for fixed and articulated storage with STAAD Pro.
