INNOVATIVE COLD FORM BASED COMPOSITE SECTION FOR ENHANCING SUSTAINABILITY IN BUILT ENVIRONMENT
The pre-engineered steel buildings are widely used in the construction of industrial buildings. Very short erection time and higher strength to weight ratio are the major advantages of these systems. Some of the components like slabs and walls in PEB construction are still done on-site. This paper addresses this limitation through development of a composite panel using cold form steel section. The panel is experimentally analyzed for flexure and the results hence obtained are also simulated using finite element method.
