According to the structural point of view Industrial Pallet rack structure can be considered typical steel framed structure. An analytical study for the sensitivity of pallet rack configuration in linear static equivalent lateral loads is considered for analysis. This work presents a general analysis of an industrial pallet rack structure, evaluating the influence of each of the components on the global stability. The braced/unbraced frames were prepared and analytical models are to be built in software. The FEM is used to determine axial forces in column, maximum storey displacement and story drift on braced/unbraced pallet rack structure. Different types of bracing system are used for study of structural behaviour of an industrial pallet rack steel structure. Bracing systems are mostly provided to enhance the stiffness factor of the structures with the seismic loads. Unbraced systems have been mostly translational modes of failure and are very flexible due to excessive loads

Keywords: Pallets Rack, Cold Formed Steel, Seismic Design, Finite Element Analysis, Buckling Capacity.
