    Abstract :

    In a developing country like INDIA the annual expenditure on construction of industrial building is very high.In almost every industrial building like light engineering industries, warehouses, workshops, and storage sheds the key element is roof truss. To achieve a mass production and economy under a project B-8 Indian government standardized some parameters of steel truss on broad norms. In this paper the comparative study is carried out on five different spans of A-type truss given in SP 38(S&T):1987; Handbook for typified designs for structures with steel roof trusses. A detailed comparative study is carried out on a 9m span truss by using Indian standard code IS 875(Part 3):1987 and SP38:1987. In IS 875 (Part 3):1987 the intensity of wind load is calculated considering different conditions of class of structure, terrain, height and structure size factor, topography factor and permeability conditions. Therefore the comparative study is carried out with the help of commercial software ANSYS 11.0.
