Seismic Retrofitting - A Case Study of 4 Cities

Concrete | 2018

Earthquakes are one of the most devastating natural disasters, owing to their unpredictability and destructive capabilities. Based on the history of earthquakes in a particular region, it is categorized into various zones from I to V, with Zone V being the most seismically active area. We conducted case studies in Shimla, Guwahati, Agartala and Srinagar. Each of the areas considered lie in Zone V of seismicity and are in dire need of seismic retrofitting measures.
