Development of Seismic Codes

 

Actively involved in the development of seismic codes in India. Published a large number of papers  on this work. On request of the concerned committees, prepared thoroughly revised drafts of seismic code provisions on:

 
A major study on building codes (for protection against earthquakes, winds and cyclones, fires, and terrorism) was completed for Gujarat State Disaster Management Authority and numerous documents were developed by a large team of experts from all over the country. The scope of work included review of relevant codes, suggestions for modifications therein, development of several new codes, development of commentaries and handbooks, and dissemination of the same to interested professionals through a variety of means. Numerous reports developed under this project are placed at the NICEE web site (http://www.nicee.org/IITK-GSDMA_Codes.php), and are being very popular with the professionals as seen by huge number of hits that the web pages of these reports receive.
