EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT BUILDING DESIGNS

COMPLETE VIDEO GUIDE FOR EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

As we all know , Nepal is very prone to regular earthquake and it is very necessary to follow earthquake resistant building construction for minimizing the loss of life and property due to the earthquake.
As Nepal’s mountains were formed by the movement of two giant tectonic plates, indian and tibetian plates. The pushing action of indian plate towards the Tibetian plate has been stated as the reason for the formation of mountains in Nepal.
As the movement of both plate is continuous, a lot of energy is stored in these tectonic plates and when limit is reached, they give up energy by cracking and thus earthquake occurs.
As most part of Nepal lies in the junction of these two giant plates, it is very obvious for earthquake in Nepal.It is estimated that approximately in every 80-90 years , larger earthquake will occur in Nepal, though it is only estimation and has no proof till date, and it is very uncertain when and where will it occur.
Recent earthquake that occurred in april,2015 badly affected 14 districts of Nepal and Government of Nepal has been involved in reconstruction in those areas. with more than 500,000 houses completely destroyed, a lot of budget and resource is required to rebuilt these places.
Nepal Government released designs for earthquake resistant building but it could not address people's problems and needs. Realising that government released another version of designs but that also could not solve the problem.
With vague variety of culture and economic status, most of people are economically backward and fund provided by government is not enough to build the house of their need. So, it is estimated that more than 70% of affected families will not be able to rebuild their houses.
