Abstract:

Earthquakes are caused by rupture of rock zones called faults. The earths surface consists of tectonic plates which move relative to one another building strain energy along the plate boundaries. When this energy exceeds the capacity of the rock materials along the fault surface, the fault ruptures with seismic waves transmitted through hard bedrock layers. When an earthquake occurs, seismic waves radiate away from the source and travel rapidly through the earths crust. When these waves reach the ground surface, they produce shaking that may last from seconds to minutes. The strength and duration of shaking at a particular site depends on the size and location of the earthquake and on the characteristics of the site. Traditional techniques of house building have proven in past earthquakes their ability to withstand these seismic waves. During the 1905 Kangra earthquake, the traditional Kat-Ki Kunni houses in Kullu valley made up of timber remained unaffected. The Dhajji-Diwari buildings remained intact in the 1885 Srinagar earthquake. In Uttarkashi the traditional 100 years old multistoried buildings called Pherols have incorporated basic features of earthquake resistance. This paper focuses on the study of these traditional buildings ability to resist earthquakes.
