IIT Mundi developed a method to assess earthquake affected structures in the Himalayas.

,

RVS uses visual information to decide if a building is safe for occupancy, or if urgent engineering work is needed to increase earthquake safety.

Existing RVS methods are based on data from different countries and are not specifically applicable to the Himalayan region of India as some characteristics are unique to buildings in this region.

For example, the Himalayan region (as with most of India) has many unengineered structures.

Lack of awareness among local construction workers and poor planning by stakeholders also leads to chaotic distribution and infrastructure development. Therefore, it is important to use an area-specific RVS guideline that considers factors such as local construction practices, typology, etc.

Explaining the research, Saha said: “We have developed an effective method for screening reinforced concrete (RC) buildings in the Indian Himalayan region to prioritize repair work based on the condition of the buildings and the upcoming The risk of earthquakes can be avoided. At least.”

Through extensive field surveys, researchers have collected large amounts of data on the types of buildings in the Mandi area and specific characteristics of those buildings that are associated with their seismic vulnerability.
