mkaPEB is One-Stop Solution for PEB & Single Storey Steel Structures from Design to Manufacturing.

In the construction market worldwide, 80% of all steel buildings are single-storey non-residential steel buildings. MkaPEB was developed specifically for the design of such buildings.

 

What types of structures can be modeled with mkaPEB?

  • All types of Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEBs)

  • Steel Trusses

  • Portal Frames

  • Factories

  • Warehouses

  • Workshops

  • Cold Storages

  • Showrooms

  • Supermarkets

  • Aircraft Hangars

  • Poultry Farms

  • Bulk Storage Buildings

 


Choosing right software

When choosing software, structural engineers first turn to general-purpose software.  mkaPEB does not allow you to model all kinds of steel structures. But with MkaPEB, you can design  single-storey structures that make up more than 70% of steel structures at least 20 times faster.

You increase your competitive power by using the time that mkaPEB saves you in searching for more economical solutions.

 


Where does mkaPEB save you time?

The diagram below describes the work that needs to be done during the design of a steel structure project.

 

1). There are very advanced software for creating the static model. They cannot surpass our speed with our widely used ready-made steel structure templates because mkapeb is fully parametric.

2). Load analysis takes a lot of time. It needs to be refreshed when the build model changes. It is very difficult to accurately calculate complex loadings such as wind in general purpose software.

mkaPEB recognizes the structure. It does not leave the analysis of complex loads to the user. It calculates and assigns itself to the relevant building elements. Thus, it prevents the user from making mistakes.

Wind loads:  https://youtu.be/o3WHQ-W65t8

Crane loads: https://youtu.be/r9M1IGmcfq8

 

3) mkaPEB performs static analyzes with the FEM method like advanced software.

There are many current building design codes.

  • It is based on AISC-360-10, AISC-360-16, EN-1991-1-1, IS-800, CYHTYE-2018 standards in the design of hot-rolled steel structural elements.
  • It makes the design of light steel elements that can be used in roof purlins and wall purlins according to EN-1991-1-3. We are working on AISI-S100-16′. It will be added shortly.
  • The design of reinforced concrete structural elements such as concrete columns can be made according to EN-1992 or ACI-318-16.

It has its own design engine for steel connections.  mkaPEB can design connections according to EN-1993-1-8 or AISC-360-16 and AISC design guides.

A structure with wrong foundation calculations will eventually collapse. Especially in structures with high, high-capacity cranes, the soil bearing capacity is checked for the correct determination of the foundation dimensions. The field of geotechnical engineering was entered, and the Meyerhof formula, found in EN-1997, was used.

Many calculations may have been made. Unlike advanced software, the results are not given only in tables. Detailed account reports have been prepared. These reports are almost like a school project.

 

4) The most important of the unique features of mkaPEB is that it can switch from a static model to a 3D building model.

It has a very strong CAD infrastructure. It does not cause problems even in very large building models.

2D drawings required for the approval and fabrication project are obtained from the 3D model.

DSTV-NC files required to produce the steel structure with CNC machines can be produced with mkaPEB.

Almost all steel structure manufacturers prepare their fabrication projects with Tekla.  We understand that they do not use our drawings as there is no tolerance for error.  We have developed the export to Tekla feature with original Tekla macros so they do not waste time remodeling with Tekla.

 

5) The customer’s greatest curiosity is the cost of building the steel structure. With mkaPEB, a quick but approximate cost can be calculated. After creating the 3D model, it is possible to calculate the net cost.

mkaPEB Features

  • mkaPEB has a wide range of template types defined for portal frame and steel roof truss systems with variable cross-sections. All the features of the roof systems in these templates are parametric. If needed, they can be defined side by side and at different levels.

 

  • Snow Loads

Recognisıng the building structure and understanding the regional snow loads within the areas where snow accumulates on the roof, dependent on the load standards selected by the user.

It automatically loads varying loads according to the regions where the roof purlins are located.

When an engineer makes a change in the dimensions and shape of the structure, the most time-consuming load analysis is done in less than 1 second.

 

  • Wind Loads

Wind loads are the most complex of loads acting on the structure. The value of the load on the roof and facades varies regionally.

mkaPEB is familiar with the structure and knows the Eurocode, ASCE-07, IS-875 standards, automatically performs this complex calculation when the structure properties change.

The calculation which has been made by the software is automatically transferred to the roof and facade purlins and the main carrier system.

 

 

  • Crane Loads

For overhead crane loads, the overhead crane runway beam should be designed first. mkaPEB calculates this according to the rules given in AISC-Design Guide 7 and EN-1991-3 and automatically assigns loads to the columns.

 

 

  • Earthquake Loads

TDY-2018, AISC-341-16, Eurocode-8, EAK-2000 (Greece), IS 1893 Earthquake regulations are implemented in mkaPEB.

  • Tension-only member design for wall and roof bracings.

Elements on roofs and facades, especially central braces, buckle under compression loads due to their slenderness. mkaPEB can identify which element will buckle under which load and analyzes the system so that it is only supported by the tension-only members. Whilst making this analysis, it takes into account the thermal effects of Summer-Winter temperature differences and wind and earthquake loads coming from the facade. After solving each one separately, it superposes and controls the element strengths according to this last situation.

By doing this, mkaPEB was able to use tension-only rods in the braces.

 

 

  • Design of main members

Detailed design will be carried out according to various international codes.

 

 

  • Connections Design

mkaPEB steel truss automatically performs joint calculations for many joints on roofs and facades.

It resizes the connection plates according to the welding lengths calculated in the steel shears. Thus, the processing time is shortened and the possibility of error is eliminated.

If the selected steel structure design regulation is AISC-360, Connections is based on AISC-360-16 and design guides published by AISC.

If Eurocode 3 is selected, the strength of the connections is checked based on EN-1993-1-8.

The design of other combinations can be done after static calculations are made from the combination design page.

The properties of the combination can be changed parametrically.

The distances of the bolts to the edges and the limits of the welds are checked.

While calculating the strength of the connection, the changes can be followed on the 3D model.

2D technical drawing of the connection can also be taken.

 

 

  • Pad footing design

In our single-story warehouse-hangar type structure, the columns are under the effect of one-way bending. Especially when calculating foundations in structures with overhead cranes or under the influence of high wind force – Soil capacity It is thought that geotechnical controls should be done in addition to the reinforcement calculation.

The general bearing capacity formula recommended by Hansen Vesic in Eurocode -7 is used. Our aim with mkaPEB is to make all the elements of the steel structure, from the roof to the timeline, resistant to disaster situations.

 

 

  • Detailed design reports

Today, many structure analysis software gives their calculations within tables. And they show the accuracy of their calculations with verification solutions. This view was not adopted in mkaPEB. For this reason, the load calculations are given with detailed calculation reports for the design of steel structural elements and connections. The engineer can follow the reference, formulas, and process steps of the calculation.

We came to the first question asked by the engineer or the investor who prepared the proposal or made the analysis. What is the cost of this structure we calculated?

mkaPEB can extract all the material lists used in the building. The user can change the unit prices of the materials. Amended new unit prices are saved for future projects. Prices can be updated automatically according to the daily changing exchange rates. The ratio of scrap quantities for the offer can be changed from the table. On the table, the total used steel, m2 used steel, m2 unit cost, and the total cost can be examined.

 

mkaPEB prepares 3D solid model along with connections, which practically represent real-life structure.

  • DSTV-NC files for CNC machines

Today, CNC machines are widely used in the manufacture of steel structures. The biggest feature of 3D modeling software such as Tekla, Advance Steel, Bocad, SDS/2 is that it can produce DSTV-NC files. This issue was primarily targeted when mkaPEB was started to be developed
