Abstract

India is divided in to four seismic zones ,viz.,zone II( moderate) to zone V (Very Severe). In each of these zones , rural areas exist and the rural buildings are unique in pattern to that particular zone . Many of these rural buildings are non-engineered and are always the ‘worst hit’ during devastating earthquakes . However, it is interesting to note that some of these buildings which follow traditional construction patterns and practices , popularly known as vernacular constructions , have withstood the power of earthquakes and are time tested. In this work , the results of a parametric study conducted on the seismic performance of typical rural houses of India , are presented . The study involved the analysis of representative numerical models of typical rural buildings of various geometries , materials and patterns . These representative models are the outcome of the several field investigations and review of the extensive standard literature available on construction practices adopted in rural housing In India .Based on the performance of these buildings in terms of their response parameters such as moments , shears , displacements , levels of satisfactory performance are drawn . An attempt is made to recommend alternative pattern/ geometry/ material that suits a particular zone of the country.
