Codes for design and development of earthquake resistant buildings in India

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

While buying an apartment in a builder project, one would have noticed the words ‘Earthquake Resistant Building’ in the ‘Specifications’ section.  This is mandated as per the codes and guidelines framed by The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

As we know, a good part of North India and hilly regions have been classified as seismically sensitive zones or earthquake prone. Therefore construction of buildings in these regions has to be meticulous and as per the strict guidelines and set of rules laid down by The Bureau of Indian Standards BIS. Deviation from these guidelines may prove to be harmful in case of a severe earthquake. The buildings need to be designed in such a way that they can withstand the ground vibrations caused by earthquakes. Failure to adhere to guidelines can cause damage to human life and loss of property.

We have seen in past, how earthquakes have proved to be disastrous. And therefore, putting in place systems and guidelines that can avoid or limit the loss are extremely useful.
