Selected Reading Material on Earthquake Engineering in India

The profession of earthquake engineering is in its nascent stages in India. A large volume of experience exists in many countries like New Zealand, Japan and USA on continually improving the earthquake resistant constructions through lessons learnt from damaging earthquakes, regularly updating of the seismic design codes, conducting continuing education programs for practicing professionals, improving the curriculum in colleges, and involving professional societies in the mainstream of the profession. The material presented in this section is intended for reading by general audience to broaden the understanding of the reader on the current state-of-the-practice in India and the state-of-the-art elsewhere in the world.
