I.S. CODES ON EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT BUILDING DESIGN

Bureau of Indian Standard has divided the country into five zones depending upon the severity of earthquake after observing Indian earthquakes for several years. IS 1893-1984 shows the various zones. Following IS codes will be of great significance for the design engineers:

IS 1893-2002: Criteria for Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures (5th revision).

IS 4928-1993: Code of practice for Earthquake Resistant Design & Construction of Buildings. (2nd revision)

IS 13827-1992: Guidelines for Improving Earthquake Resistance of Low Strength Masonry Building

IS: 13920-1997: for Ductile Detailing of Reinforced Concrete Structures Code of practice Subjected to Seismic Forces.

IS: 13935-1993: Guidelines for Repair and Seismic Strengthening of Buildings.
