A Study on Earthquake Resistance Building Construction

Anil Upadhyay, Himanshu Agrawal, Hanish Jain



Earthquake is one of the largest and greatest dangerous hazards of the property and life in the world. Due to its quick and sudden reaction, the buildings, highways, bridges, tunnels etc, are damaged very fast and also causes so many fatal and nonfatal injuries of people. For the safety purpose, many precautions during the design and construction time were considered in the structures. In this paper, we have done a study about earthquake and its related terminology. Here we have discussed the seismic design philosophy for buildings and mention Indian seismic codes used for the improvement in the behavior of structures. Also discusses some technique by which structures and buildings should make earthquake resistance in earthquake zone.
