  • 1. CT.Lakshmanan Assistant Professor (Selection Grade) School of Architecture & Interior Design SRM University Elementary Seismology Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan

2. The Vulnerability Profile - India

  • 59%of land mass prone toearthquakes
  • 40 million hectares ( 8% ) of landmass prone tofloods
  • 8000 Km long coastlinewith twocyclone seasons
  • Hilly regionsvulnerable to avalanches/ landslides /Hailstorms/cloudburst
  • 68%of the total area susceptible todrought
  • Different types of manmade Hazards
  • Tsunami threat
  • 1 million houses damaged annually + human, economic, social and other losses

  • Capacity-resources, means and strengths which exist in households and communities and which enable them to cope with, withstand, prepare for, prevent, mitigate or quickly recover from a disaster
  • H x V - C = R
  • Hazard x vulnerability capacity = risk
    • H - potential threat to humans and their welfare
    • V - exposure and susceptibility to loss of life or dignity
    • C - available and potential resources
    • R - probability of disaster occurrence

Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 6. Disaster Prevention, Mitigation & preparedness

  • Prevention requires theelimination of riskwhile mitigation is thereduction of risk ..
  • Disaster Preparedness :Forecastand take precautionarymeasures in advanceof an imminent threat.

  • The term Seismology is derived from Greek word Seismo, which meansearthquakeand logos meansscience ; hence theSeismology is Science of Earthquakes
  • Seismology can be defined in two ways:
  • 1. The science of earthquakes and the physics of the earths interior
  • 2. The science of elastic wave (seismic waves)

  • A fault is nothing but a crack or weak zone inside the Earth. When two blocks of rock or two plates rub against each other along a fault, they dont just slide smoothly.
  • As the tectonic forces continue to prevail, the plate margins exhibit deformation as seen in terms of bending, compression, tension and friction. Therocks eventually break giving rise to an earthquake , because of building of stresses beyond the limiting elastic strength of the rock.

  • Shallow focus Earthquakes
    • < 70 km deep
  • Intermediate focus earthquakes
    • 70 km ~ 300 km
  • Deep focus earthquakes
    • > 300 km

Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 14. Magnitude Vs Intensity

  • The magnitude of an earthquake is determined instrumentally and is more objective measure of its size
  • Intensity of an earthquake is a subjective parameter based on assessment of visible effects. It depends on factors other than the actual size of the earthquake

Similarly, a badly configured building Cannot be engineered for an improved performance beyond a certain limit. 1. Configuration Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 31. Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 32. Regular Configuration

  • Regular configuration is seismically ideal. These configurations have low heights to base ratio, symmetrical plane, uniform section and elevation and thus have balanced resistance.

These configurations would have maximum torsional resistance due to location of shear walls and bracings. Uniform floor heights, short spans and direct load path play a significant role in seismic resistance of the building. Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 33.

Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 46. Ductility L et us first understand how different materials behave.Considerwhite chalkused to write on blackboards andsteel pinswith solid heads used to hold sheets of paper together. Yes a chalk breaks easily !!On the contrary, a steel pinallows it to be bent back-and-forth . Engineers define the property that allows steel pins to bend back-and-forth by large amounts, asductility ; chalk is abrittlematerial. Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 47. The currently adopted performance criteria in the earthquake codes are the following: i. The structure should resist moderate intensity of earthquake shaking without structural damage.ii. The structure should be able to resist exceptionally large intensity of earthquake shaking without collapse. Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 48.

  • The strength of brittle construction materials, like masonry and concrete, is highly sensitive to the
  • quality of construction materials
  • workmanship

  • methods

Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 49. Quality control special care is needed in construction to ensure that the elements meant to be ductile are indeed provided with features that give adequate ductility.Thus, strict adherence to prescribed standards of construction materials and construction processes is essential in assuring an earthquake-resistant building.Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 50. El ements of good quality control. 1. Regular testing of construction materials at qualified laboratories (at site or away)2. P eriodic training of workmen at professional training houses, and 3.On-site evaluation of the technical work Prepared by CT.Lakshmanan 51.
