It is applicable for all students admitted in the Academic year 2013-2014 onwards for all its Affiliated institutions in Tamil Nadu.



 To understand the dynamics of earth and its response, effect on earth structure and measures to mitigate the effects. Students are able to develop the design ground motion for a site by suitable response analysis to analyse and design geotechnical structures. Students are able to prepare a hazard and risk map.

UNIT I ELEMENTS OF EARTHQUAKE SEISMOLOGY AND DYNAMICS 6 Mechanism of Earthquakes - Causes of earthquake - Earthquake Fault sources - Elastic Rebound theory - Seismic wave in Earthquake shaking - Definition of earthquake terms - Locating an earthquake - Quantification of earthquakes.

UNIT II GROUND MOTION CHARACTERISTICS 10 Strong Motion Records -characteristics of ground motion - Factors influencing ground motion - Estimation of frequency content parameters - Seismic site investigations - Evaluation of Dynamic soil properties. 

UNIT III GROUND RESPONSE ANALYSIS - LOCAL SITE EFFECTS AND DESIGN GROUND MOTION 10 Wave propagation Analysis - Site Amplification, Ground Response Analysis - Method of analysis - One Dimensional Analysis - Equivalent linear Analysis – shear beam Analysis - site effects - Design Ground Motion - Developing Design Ground Motion. Application of software package - codal recommendations. 

UNIT IV SEISMIC STABILITY ANALYSIS 12 Earthquake Resistant Design of foundation of buildings - Design considerations - Geotechnical - Architectural - Structural - Capacity Design - Seismic analysis. Earthquake Response of slopes - Evaluation of slope stability - Pseudostatic Analysis - Newmark's Study of Block Analysis - Dynamic Analysis - Earth pressure due to ground shaking valuation - Lateral Deformation - codal provisions. 

UNIT V EARTHQUAKE HAZARD MITIGATION 7 Seismic risk vulnerability and hazard - Risk mapping - scale – changing percept of risk – vulnerability Atlas of India. Hazard assessment - Maintenance and modifications to improve hazard resistance; Seismic microzonation – methodology – scale of mapping - Different type of foundation and its impact on safety. TOTAL: 45 PERIODS 

 Students are able to perform seismic stability analysis of geotechnical structures and in-situ soil by developing the design ground motion for an area based on bed rock motion and types of soils.
