A shed is typically a simple single storied structure in a back garden or on allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in the complexity of their construction and their sizes, from small open sided tin roofed structures to large wood framed sheds with shingled roofs, windows and electrical outlets. Sheds used in industries are very large structures. Industrial Shed constructions are metal sheathing over a metal frame, plastic sheathing and frame.

Steel offers numerous possibilities to achieve both pleasant and flexible functional use. For buildings of large enclosure, the economy of the structure plays an important role. For longer spans, the design is optimized in order to minimize the use of materials, cost and installations effort. Increasingly, buildings are designed to reduce energy costs and to achieve a high degree of sustainability.

Large open spaces can be created that are efficient, easy to maintain, and are adaptable as demand changes. Steel is chosen on economic grounds as well as for other aspects such as fire, architectural quality and sustainability. In most cases, an Industrial building is not a single structure, but is extended by office and administration units or elements.

A typical design of shed consists of the below steps:

  • To design the industrial shed as per its drawing details, in Bentley Staad-Pro V8i.
  • To check the structure as per code, with all the member sections as per the drawings.
  • To design the structure against Dead Loads, Live Loads, Wind Loads, and a few miscellaneous Loads.
  • To check the structure against crane loads.
  • To check the structure against the combination of loads against failure and testing the situation of failure on the structure.
  • To analyze the stresses in the members and assess failure.
  • To analyze the behavior of the member after failure and have a safe damage tolerant design various optimisation tools can be used like OPTISTRUCT to optimise the designs
