e-conference on Indian Seismic Codes

(January 26 - February 8, 2002)

Recent Indian earthquakes have brought the seismic vulnerability of our modern cities and civil infrastructure in focus. As you are aware, that structural design codes play a very vital role in ensuring the construction of safe structures. It is very important that not only these codes reflect the state-of-the-knowledge, but also they are fully understood for the proper implementation.


Beginning January 26, 2002, the first anniversary of the Bhuj earthquake, NICEE (National Information Centre of Earthquake Engineering) will host a two-week e-conference on Indian Seismic Codes (IS:1893 and IS:13920). It is hoped that the participants will share their concerns, knowledge and experience with fellow professionals. This e-conference is targeted at civil engineers involved in design and construction. The e-conference is free to participants and they only need to have an access to e-mail and preferably to the Web for browsing resource materials.


The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Durgesh C Rai of IIT Kanpur and Ms. Alpa Sheth of M/S Vakil, Mehta and Sheth Consulting Engineers, Bombay. Those interested in registering for e-conference please register here. Those who have already registered with NICEE did not register again.
