## Syllabus Content

###### Unit-1:  Module - 1 Earthquake Basics

Interior of Earth, plate tectonics, faults, consequences of earthquake, Basic parameters of earthquake, magnitude & intensity, scales, Seismic zones of India, damages caused during past earthquakes (worldwide).

###### Unit-2:  Module - 2 Fundamentals of Earthquake Vibrations of buildings

Static load v/s Dynamic load (force control and displacement control), simplified single degree of freedom system, mathematical modelling of buildings, natural frequency, resonance v/s increased response, responses of buildings to different types of vibrations like free and forced, damped and un-damped vibration, response of building to earthquake ground motion, Response to multi degree (maximum three) of freedom systems up to mode shapes

###### Unit-3:  Module - 3 Design Philosophy

Philosophy of earthquake resistant design, earthquake proof v/s earthquake resistant design, four virtues of earthquake resistant structures (strength, stiffness, ductility and configuration), seismic structural configuration, Introduction to IS: 1893 (Part I), IS: 875 (Part V). Seismic load: Seismic Coefficient Method – base shear and lateral force distribution along height. Introduction to Response spectrum, IS code provisions.

###### Unit-4:  Module - 4 Lateral Loads on Buildings:
