CRI TERI A FOR EARTHQUAKE RESI STANT
DESI GN OF STRUCTURES
( Fourth Revision )
0. FOREWORD
0.1 This Indian Standard. ( Fourth Revision) was adopted by the Indian
Standards Institution on 16 November 1981, after the draft finalized by
the Earthquake Engineering Sectional Committee had been approved by
the Civil Engineering Division Council.
0.2 HimalayanNagalushai region, IndoGangetic plain, Western India,
Kutch and Kathiawar regions are geologically unstable parts of the coun
try and some devastating earthquakes of the world have occurred there. A
major part of the peninsular India has also been visited by strong earth
quakes, but these were relatively few in number and had considerably
lesser intensity. The earthquake resistant design of structures taking into
account seismic data from studies of these Indian earthquakes has become
very essential,. particularly in view of the heavy construction programme at
present all over the country. It is to serve this purpose that IS : 18931962
‘Recommendations for earthquake resistant design of structures’ was pub
lished and subsequently revised in 1966.
0.2.1 As a result of additional seismic data collected in India and further
knowledge and experience gained since the publication of the first revision
of this standard, the Sectional Committee felt the need to revise the stan
dard again incorporating many changes, such as revision of maps showing
seismic zones and epicentres, adding a more rational approach for design
of buildings and substructure of bridges, etc. These were covered in the
second revision of IS : 1893 brought out in 1970.
0.2.2 As a result of the increased use of the standard, considerable
amount of suggestions were received for modifying some of the provisions
of the standard and, therefore, third revision of the standard was brought
out in 1975. The following changes were incorporated in the third
revision:

IS: 1893  1984

The standard incorporated seismic zone factors ( previously given
as multiplying factors in the second revision ) on a more rational
basis.
Importance factors were introduced to account for the varying
degrees of importance for various structures.
In the clauses for design of multistoreyed building the coefficient
of flexibility was given in the form of a curve with respect to
period of buildings.
A more rational formula was used to combine modal shears.
New clauses were introduced for determination of hydrodynamic
pressures in elevated tanks.
f) Clauses on concrete and masonry dams were modified, taking into
account their dynamic behaviour during earthquakes. Simplified
formulae for design forces were introduced based on results of
extensive studies carried out since second revision of the standard
was published.
0.3 The fourth revision has been prepared to modify some of the provi
sions of the standard as a result of experience gained with the use of this
standard. In this revision a number of Important basic modifications with
respect to load factors, field values of N, base shear and modal analysis
have been introduced. A new concept of performance factor depending on
the structural framing system and brittleness or ductility of construction
has been incorporated. Figure 2 for average acceleration spectra has also
been modified and a curve for zero percent damping has been
incorporated.
0.4 It is not intended in this standard to lay down regulations so that no
structure shall suffer any damage during earthquake of all magnitudes. It
has been endeavoured to ensure that, as far as possible, structures are able
to respond, without structural damage to shocks of moderate intensities
and without total collapse to shocks of heavy intensities. While this stan
dard is intended for earthquake resistant design of normal structures, it has
to be emphasized that in the case of special structures detailed investigation
should be undertaken, unless otherwise specified in the relevant clauses.
0.4.1 Though the basis for the design of different types of structures is
covered in this standard, it is not implied that detailed dynamic analysis
should be made in every case. There might be cases of less importance and
relatively small structures for which no analysis need be made, provided
certain simple precautions are taken in the construction. For example,
suitably proportioned diagonal bracings in the vertical panels of steel and
concrete structures add to the resistance of frames to withstand earthquake
forces. Similarly in highly seismic areas, construction of a type which
IS : 1893  1984
entails heavy debris and consequent loss of life and property, such as
masonry, particularly mud masonry and rubble masonry, should be avoi
ded in preference to construction of a type which is known to withstand
seismic eflects better, such as construction in light weight materials and
well braced timberframed structures. For guidance on piecautions to be
observed in the construction of buildings, reference may be made
to IS : 43261976*.
0.5 Attention is particularly drawn to the fact that the intensity of shock
due to an earthquake could greatly vary locally at any ~given place due to
variation in the soil conditions. Earthquake forces would be affected by
different types of foundation system in addition to variation of ground
motion due to various types of soils. Considering the effects in a gross man
ner, the standard gives guidelines for arriving at design seismic coefficients
based on type of soil and foundation system.
0.6 Earthquakes can cause damage not only on account of the shaking
which results from them but also due to other chain effects like landslides,
floods, fires and disruption to communication. It is, therefore, important
to take necessary precautions in the design of structures so that they are
safe against such secondary effects also.
0.7 It is important to note that the seismic coeficient, used in ihe design
of any structure, is dependent on many variable factors and it is an extre
mely dificult task to determine the exact seismic coefficient in each given
case. Tt is, therefore, necessary to indicate broadly the seismic coeficients
that could generally be adopted in different parts or zones or the country
though, of course, a rigorous analysis considering all the factors involved
has got to be made in the case of all important projects in order to arrive
at suitable seismic coefficients for design. The Sectional Committee respon
sible for the formulation of this standard has attempted to include a seis
mic zoning map ( see Fig. 1 ) for this purpose. The object of this map is to
classify the area of the country into a number of zones in which one may
reasonably expect earthquake shock of more or less same intensity in future.
The Modified Mercalli Intensity ( see 2.7 ) broadly associated with the
various zones is V or less, VI, VII, VIII and 1X and above for zones I,
II, III, IV and V respectively. The maximum seismic ground acceleration
in each zone cannot be presently predicted with accuracy either on a
deterministic or on a probabilistic basis. The design value chosen for a
particular structure is obtained by multiplying the basic horizontal seismic
coefficient for that zone, given in Table 2, by an appropriate Importance
Factor as suggested in Table 4. Higher value of importance factor is usually
adopted for those structures, consequences of failure of which, are serious.
However, even with an importance factor of unity, the probability is that

(Jr& revision ).

IS t 1893  1984
a structure which is properly designed and detailed according to good con
struction practice, will not suffer serious damage.
It is pointed out that structures will normally experience more severe
ground motion than the one envisaged in the seismic coefficient specified
in this standard. However, in view of the energy absorbing capacity avail
able in inelastic range, ductile structures will be able to resist such shocks
without much damage. It is, therefore, necessary that ductility must be
built into the structures since brittle structures will be damaged more
extensively.
0.7.1 The Sectional Committee has appreciated that there cannot be. an
entirely scientific basis for zoning in view of the scanty data available.
Though the magnitudes of different earthquakes which have occurred in
the past are known to a reasonabIe amount of accuracy, the intensities of
the shocks caused by these earthquakes have so far been mostly estimated
by damage surveys and there is little instrumental evidence to corroborate
the conclusions arrived at. Maximum intensity at different places can be
fixed on a scale only on the basis of the observations made and recorded
after the earthquake and thus a zoning map which is based on the maxi
mum intensities arrived at, is likely to lead in some cases to an incorrect
conclusion in the view of (a) incorrectness in the assessment of intensities,
ib) human error in judgement during the damage survey, and (c) varia
tion in quality and design of structures causing variation in type and
extent of damage to the structures for the same intensity of shock. The
Sectional Committee has, therefore, considered that a rational approach to
the problem would be to arrive at a zoning map based on known magni
tudes and’ the known epicentres (see Appendix A) assuming all other condi
tions as being average, and to modify such an average idealized isoseismal
map in the light of tectonics ( see Appendix B ), lithology ( see Appendix C)
and the maximum intensities as recorded from damage surveys, etc. The
Committee has also reviewed such a map in the light of past history and
future possibilities and also attempted to draw the lines demarcating the
different zones so as to be clear of important towns, cities and industrial
areas, after making special examination of such cases, as a little modifica
tion in the zonal demarcations may mean considerable difference to the
economics of a project in that area. Maps shown in Fig. 1 and Appendices
A, B and C are prepared based on information available up to 1986.
0.8 In the formulation of this standard due weightage has been given to
international coordination among the standards and practices prevailing
in different countries in addition to relating it to the practices in the field
in this country.

0.8.1 In the preparation of this standard considerable help has been
given by the School of Research and Training in Earthquake Engineering,
University of Roorkee; Geological Survey of India; India Meteorological
Department and several other organizations.
0.9 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this
standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, express
ing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with
IS : 21960*. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off
value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standrd.
1. SCOPE
1.1 This standard deals with earthquake resistant design of structures and
is applicable to buildings; elevated structures; bridges, concrete, masonry
and earth dams; embankments and retaining walls.
1.2 This standard does not deal with the construction features relating to
earthquake resistant design in buildings and other structures. For guidance
on earthquake resistant construction of buildings, reference may be made
to IS : 43261976T. Further, provisions of this standard shall be used along
with IS : 43261976t.

number according to the Modified Mercalli Scale of Seismic Intensities
( see Appendix D ).
2.8 Liquefaction  Liquefaction is a state in saturated cohesionless soil

mum trace amplitude, expressed in microns, with which the standard short
period torsion seismometer ( with a period of 0.8 second, magnification
2 800 and damping nearly critical ) would register the earthquake at an
epicentral distance of 100 km. The magnitude hf is thus a number which
is a nieasure of energy released in an earthquake.
2.11 Mode Shape Coefficient  When a system is vibrating in a normal
mode, the amplitude of the masses at any particular instant of time expre
ssed as a ratio of the amplitude of one of the masses is known as mode shape

ments simultaneously and also they pass through equilibrium positions
simultaneously.

2.15 Tectonic Feature  The nature of geological formation of the bed
rock in the earth’s crust revealing regions characterized by structural
features, such as dislocation, distortion, faults, folding, thrusts, volcanoes
with their age of formation which are directly involved in the earth
movement or quakes resulting in the above consequences.
3. GENERAL PRINCIPLES AND DESIGN CRITERIA
3.1 General Principles
3.1.1 Earthquakes cause random motion of ground which can be resol
ved in any three mutually perpendicular directions. This motion causes the
structure to vibrate. The vibration intensity of ground expected at any
location depends upon the magnitude of earthquake, the depth of focus,
distance from the epicentre and the strata on which the structure stands.
The predominant direction of vibration is horizontal. Relevant combina
tions of forces applicable for design of a particular structure have been
specified in the relevant clauses.
3.1.2 The response of the structure to the ground vibration is a function
of the nature of foundation soil; materials, form, size and mode of construc
tion of the struture; and the duration and the intensity of ground motion.
This standard specifies design seismic coefficient for structures standing on
soils or rocks which will not settle or slide due to Ioss of strength during
vibrations.
11
IS:1893  1984
3.1.3 The seismic coefficients recommended in this standard are based
on design practice conventionally followed and performance of structures
in past earthquakes, It is well understood that the forces which structures
would be subjected to in actual earthquakes, would be very much larger
than specified in this sta.ndard as basic seismic coefficient. In order to take
care of this gap, for special cases importance factor and performance factor
( where necessary ) are specified in this standard elsewhere.
3.1.4 In the case of structures designed for horizontal seismic force only,
it shall be considered to act in any one direction at a time. Where both
horizontal and vertical seismic forces are taken into account, horizontal
force in any one direction at a time may be considered simultaneously with
the vertical force as specified in 3.4.5.
3.1.5 The vertical seismic coefficient shall be considered in the case of
structures in which stability is a criterion of design or, for overall stability,
analysis of structures except as otherwise stated in the relevant clauses.
3.1.6 Equipment and systems supported at various floor levels of struc
tures will be subjected to motions corresponding to vibrations at their
support points. In important cases, it may be necessary to obtain floor
response spectra for design.
3.2 Assumptions  The following assumptions shall be made in the
earthquake resistant design of structures:
a>
b)
Cl
Earthquake causes impulsive ground motion which is complex
and irregular in character, changing in period and amplitude each
lasting for small duration. ‘Therefore, resonance of the type as
visualized under steady state sinusoidal excitations will not occur
as it would need time to build up such amplitudes.
Earthquake is not likely to occur simultaneously with wind or
maximum flood or maximum sea waves.
The value of elastic modulus of materials, wherever required, may
be taken as for static analysis unless a more definite value is avail
able for use in such condition.
3.3 Permissible Increase in Stresses and Load Factors
3.3.1 Permissible hcrease in Material Stresses  Whenever earthquake
forces are considered along with other normal design forces, the permissi
ble stresses in materials, in the elastic method of design, may be increased
by onethird. However, for steels having a definite yield stress, the stress
be limited to the yield stress; for steels without a definite yield point, the
will stress will be limited to 80 percent of the ultimate strength or 0.2 per
cent proof stress whichever
is smaller and that in prestressed concrete
members, the tensile stress in the extreme fibres of the concrete may be
permitted so as not to exceed 213 of the modulus of rupture of concrete.
12
IS : 1893  1984
3.3.2 Load Factors  Whenever earthquake forces are considered along
with other normal design forces, the following factors may be adopted:
a) For ultimate load design of steel structures:
UL = 1*4(DL+LL+EL)
where
b)
UL = the ultimate load for which the structure or its elements
should be designed according to the relevant Indian
Standards for steel structures;
DL = the dead load of the structure;
LL = the superimposed load on the structure considering its
modified values as given in the relevant clauses of this
standard; and
EL = the value of the earthquake load adopted for design,
For limit state design of reinforced and prestressed concrete
structures.
The partial safety factors for limit states of serviceability and collapse
and the procedure for design as given in relevant Indian Standards ( ste
IS : 4561978* and IS : 13431980t ) ‘may be used for earthquake loads
combined with other normal loads, The live load values to be used shall
be as given in the relevant clauses of this standard.
NOTE I. The members of reinforced or prcstressed concrete shall be under
reinforced so as to cause a tensile failure.
Further, it should be suitably designed so
that premature failure due to shear or bond may not occur subject to the provisions
of IS : 4561978* and IS : 13431980t.
NATE 2  The members and their connections in steel structures should be so
proportioned that high ductility is obtained avoiding premature failure due to
elastic or inelastic buckling of any type.
NOTE 3
 Appropriate details to achieve ductility are given in IS : 43261976#.
3.3.3 Permissible I ncrease in Allowable Bearing Pressure of Soils  When
earthquake forces are included, the permissible increase in allowable bear
ing pressure of soil shall be as given in Table 1, depending upon the type
of foundation of the structure.

NOTE I The allowable bearing pressure shall be determined in accordance with IS : 64031981$ or IS:
18881982s.
NOTE 2  If any increase in bearing pressure has already been permitted for forces other than seismic forces, the
total increase in allowable bearing pressure when seismic force is also included shall not exceed the limits specified
above.
NOTE 3  Submerged loose sands and soils falling under classification SP with standard penetration values less
than the values specified in Note 5 below, .the vibrations caused by earthquake may cause liquefaction or excessive
total and differential settlements. In important projects this aspect of the problem need be investigated and appro
priate methods of compaction or stabilization adopted to achieve suitable JY Alternatively, deep pile foundation may
be provided and taken to depths well into the layer which are not likely to liquefy. Marine clays and other sensitive
clays are also known to liquefy due to collapse of soil structure and will need special treatment according to site
conditions.
NOTE 4  The piles should be designed for lateral loads neglecting laterel resistance of soil layers liable to
liquefy.

3.4 Design Seismic Coefficient for Different Zones
3.4.1 For the purpose of determining the seismic forces, the country is
classified into five zones as shown in Fig. 1.
3.4.2 The earthquake force experienced by a structure depends on its
own dynamic characteristics in addition to those of the ground motion.
Response spectrum method takes into account these characteristics and is
recommended for use in case where it is desired to take such effects into
account. For design of other structures an equivalent static approach em
ploying use of a seismic coefficient may be adopted.
3.4.2.1 Unless otherwise stated, the basic seismic coefficients ( a,, )
and seismic zone factors ( F, ) in different zones shall be taken as given
in Table 2 and Appendices E and F.

are given in Appendix E.

NOTE 1  The percentage of live loads given above shall also be used for cal
culating stresses due to vertical loads for combining with those due to earthquake
forces. Under the earthquake condition the whole frame except the roof may be
assumed loaded with live load proportions specified above, without further reduc
tions in live load as envisaged in IS : 8751964”.
NOTE 2  The proportions of the live load indicated above for calculating the
horizontal seismic forces are applicable to average conditions. Where the probable
loads at the time of an earthquake are more accurately assessed, the designer may
alter the proportions indicated or even replace the entire live load proportions by the
actual assessed load.
NOTE 3  If the live load is assessed instead of taking the above proportions
for calculating. horizontal earthquake force, only that part of the live load shall be
considered which possesses mass. Earthquake force shall not be applied on impact
effects.

In case of buildings with floors capable of providing rigid horizon
tal diaphragm action, a separate building or any block of a build
ing between two separation sections shall be analyzed as a whole
for seismic forces as per 3.1.4. The total shear in any horizontal
plane shall be distributed to various elements of lateral forces
resisting system assuming the floors to be infinitely rigid in the
horizontal plane, In buildings having shear walls together with
frames, the frames shall be designed for at least 25 percent of the
seismic shear.
In case of buildings where floors are not able to provide the
diaphragm action as
independently;
in (a) above the building frames behave
and may be analyzed frame by frame with
tributory masses for seismic forces as per 3.1.4.’

d) Check for drift and torsion according to 4.2.3 and 4.2.4 is
desirable for all buildings, being particularly necessary in cases of
buildings greater in height than 40 m.
NOTE 1 For buildings having irregular shape and/or irregular distrikttion of
mass and stiffeners in horizontal and/or vertical plane it is desirable to carry out
modal analysis using response spectrum method ( see al so Note 2 below 4.2.1.1 ).
NOTE 2  For multistoreyed buildings, it is assumed that the storey heights are
more or less uniform ranging between 2’7 and 3.6 m. In exceptional cases where one
or twostorey heights have to be up to 5 m, the applicability of the clause is not
vitiated.

NOTE 1  The fundamental time period may either be established by experi
mental observations on similar buildings or calculated by any rational method of
analysis. In the absence of such data T may be determined as follows for multi
storeyed buildings:

design of the main structure such increase need not be considered.
4.4.3 For industrial structures and frame structures of large spans and
heights, modal analysis using response spectrum method is recommended.
5. ELEVATED STRUCTURES
5.1 General
5.1.1 The elevated structures covered by these provisions include eleva
ted tanks, refinery vessels and stacklike structures, such as chimneys of
normal pro.portions. In the case of the elevated structures of unusual
proportions, more detailed studies shall be made.
5.2 Elevated TowerSupported Tanks
5.2.1 For the purpose of this analysis, elevated tanks shall be regarded
as systems with a single degree of freedom with their mass concentrated

calculated from the following formula:
*Code ofpractice for earthquake resistant design and construction of buildings (Jrsl
revision ) .
28
IS: 1893.1984
where
A = the static horizontal deflection at the top of the tank
under a static horizontal force equal to a WC ight W acting
at the centre of gravity of tank. In calculating the period
of steel tanks, the members may be assumed to be pin
joined with only the tensile members of the bracing
regarded as active in carrying the loads. No pretension
shall be assumed in the bracing rods; and
g = acceleration due to gravity.
5.2.4 The design shall be worked out both when the tank is full and
when empty. When empty, the weight W used in the design ( see 5.2.3 )
shall consist of the dead load of the tank and onethird the weight of the

under empty condition.
5.2.5 Using the period T as calculated in 5.2.3 and appropriate damp
ing, the spectral acceleration shall be read off from the average accelera
tion spectra given in Fig. 2. The design horizontal seismic coefficient, Q
shall be calculated as in 3.4.2.3 (b).

the tank horizontally in the plane in which the snucture is assumed to
oscillate for purposes of carrying out the lateral load analysis.
5.2.7 E?_ydodyrzamic Pressure in Tanks
5.2.7.1 When a tank containing fluid vibrates the fluid exerts im
pulsive and convective pressures on the tank. The convective pressures
during earthquakes are considerably less in magnitude as compared to
impulsive pressures and its effect is a sloshing of the water surface. For the
purpose of design only the impulsive pressure may be considered.

more or less uniformly distributed along the height. Cantilever structures
like chimneys and refinery vessels are examples of such structures
( see Note).
NOTE  Such structures will not include structures like bins, hyperbolic cool
ing towers, refinery columns resting on frames or skirts. Modal analysis will be
necessary in such cases.

tructed to resist stresses produced by lateral forces as provided in the stan
dard. The stresses shall be calculated as the effect of a force applied hori
zontally at the centres of mass of the elements of the structure into which
it is conveniently divided for the purpose of design. The forces shall be
assumed to come from any horizontal direction.

7. DAMS AND EMBANKMENTS
7.1 General  In the case of important dams ic is recommended that
detailed investigations are made in accordance with IS : 49671968* for
estimating the design seismic parameters. However, where such data are
not available and in the case of minor works and for preliminary design of
major works, the seismic forces specified in 7.2 and 7.3 or 7.4, as the case
may be, shall be considered.
7.2 Hydrodynamic Effects Due to Reservior
7.2.1 Effects of Horitontal Earthquake Acceleration  Due to horizontal
acceleration of the foundation and dam there is an instantaneous hydrody
namic pressure ( or suction ) exerted against the dam in addition to hydro
static forces. The direction of hydrodynamic force is opposite to the direc
tion of earthquake acceleration. Based on the assumption that water is
incompressible, the hydrodynamic pressure at depth y below the reservoir
surface shall be determined as follows:
where
p := hydrodynamic pressure in kg/ ma at depth y,
Cs = coefficient which varies with shape and depth ( see
7.2.1.1 ),
ah =
design horizontal seismic coefficient [ see 3.4.2.3 (b) and
7.3.1 1,
w = unit weight of water in kgims, and
h = depth of reservior in m.
7.2.1.1 The variation of the coefficient Cs, with shapes and depths,
is iIIustrated in Appendix G. For accurate determination, these values may
be made use of. However, approximate values of C, for dams with vertical
or constant upstream slopes may be obtained as follows :
where
c, = maximum value of C, obtained from Fig. 10,
y = depth below surface, and
h = depth of reservoir.

For darns with combination of vertical and sloping faces, an equi
valent slope may be used for obtaining the approximate value of C,.

7.2.1.2 If the height of the vertical portion of the upstream face of
the dam is equal to or greater than onehalf the total height of the dam,
analyze it as if vertical throughout. If the height of the vertical portion
of the upstream face of the dam is less than onehalf the total height of
the dam, use the pressure on the sloping line connecting the point of
intersection of the upstream face of the dam and the reservoir surface
with the point of intersection of the upstream face of the dam with the
foundation.
7.2.1.3 The approximate values of total horizontal shear and
moment about the centre of gravity of a section due to hydrodynamic
pressure are given by the relations:
V,, = 0.726 )~y
Mh = 0.299 by=
where
Vh = hydrodynamic shear in kg/ m at any depth, and
ikfh  moment in kg.m/ m due to hydrodynamic force at any
depth y.
7.2.2 EJ ect of Horizontal Earthquake Acceleration on the Vertical Component
of Reservoir and Tail Water Load  Since the hydrodynamic pressure ( or
suction ) acts normal to the face of the dam, there shall, therefore, be a
vertical component of this force if the face of the dam against which it is
acting is sloping, the magnitude at any horizontal section being:
Wh = ( Vz  VI ) tan 6
where
Wh = increase ( or decrease ) in vertical component of load in
kg due to hydrodynamic force,
V2 = total shear in kg due to horizontal component of
hydrodynamic force at the elevation of the section being
VI =
8=
considered,
total shear in kg due to horizontal component of hydro
dynamic force at the elevation at which the slope of the
dam face commences, and
angle between the face of the dam and the vertical.
The moment due to the vertical component of reservoir and tail
water load may be obtained by determining the lever arm from the
centroid of the pressure diagram.

7.3 Concrete or Masonry Gravity and Buttress Darns
7.3.1 Earthquake Forces  In the design of concrete and masonry
dams, the earthquake forces specifi.ed in 7.3.1.1 to 7.3.1.4 shall be con
sidered in addition to the hydrodynamic pressures specified in 7.2. For
dams up to 100 m height the horizontal seismic coefficient shall be taken
as 1.5 times seismic coefficient, Q in 3.4.2.3 (a) at the top of the dam
reducing linearly to zero at the base. Vertical seismic coefficient shall
be taken as 0.75 times the value of tch at the top of the dam reducing
linearly to zero at the base. For dams over 100 m height the response
spectrum method shall be used for the design of the dams. Both the
seismic coefficient method ( for dams up to 100 m height ) and response
spectrum method ( for dams greater than 100 m height ) are meant only for
preliminary design of dams. For final design dynamic analysis is desirable.
For design of dam using the approach of linear variation of normal stresses
across the crosssection, tensile stresses may be permitted in the upstream
face up to 2 percent of the ultimate crushing strength of concrete.
7.3.1.1 Concrete or masonry inertja force due to horizontal earthquake accele
ration
a) Seismic coe&cient method ( dams uj to 100 m height )  The hori
zontal inertia force for concrete or masonry weight due to horizontal
earthquake acceleration shall be determined corresponding to the hori
zontal seismic coefficient specified in 7.3.1. This inertia force shall be
assumed to act from upstream to downstream or downstream to upstream
to get the worst combination for design. It causes an overturning moment
about the horizontal section adding to that caused by hydrodynamic
force.
b) Response spectrum method ( dams greater than 100 m height )
1) The fundamental period of vibration of the dam may be
assumed as:
T = 5.55 g

where
H = height of the dam in m,

E, = modulus of elasticity of the material in kg/ ms.
2) Using the period in (1) and for a damping of 5 percent, the
design horizontal seismic coefficient CQ shall be obtained from
3.4.2.3 (b).

7.3.1.2 Efict of vertical earthquake acceleration  The effect of vertical
earthquake acceleration is to change the unit weight of water and concrete
or masonry. An accrlrration upwards increases the weight and an accele
ration downwards decrcascs the weight. To consider the effect of vertical
earthquake acceleration, the vertical seismic coefficient would be as
follows:
a) For seismic coeficient method of design  At the top of the dams it
would be 0’75 times the ah value given in 3.4.2.3 (a) and reducing
linearly to zero at the base.
b) For response spectrum method of design  At the top of the dam it
would be 0.75 times the value of c(h given in 7.3.1.1 (b) (2) and
reducing linearly to zero at the base.
7.3.1.3 Effect of earthquake acceleration on upl;ft forces  Effect of earth
quake acceleration on uplift forces at any horizontal section is determined
as a function of the hydrostatic pressure of reservoir and tailwater against
the faces of the dam. During an earthquake the water pressure is changed
by the hydrodynamic effect. However, the change is not considered effec
tive in producing a corresponding increase or reduction in the uplift force.
The duration of the earthquake is too short to permit the building up of
pore pressure in the concrete and rock foundations.
7.3.1.4 Effect of earthquake acceleration on dead silt loads  It is sufficient
to determine the increase in the silt pressure due to earthquake by con
sidering hydrodynamic forces on the water up to the base of the dam and
ignoring the weight of the silt.
7.3.2 Earthquake Forces for Ouerjow Sections  The provisions for the
dam as given in 7.3.1 to 7.3.1.4 will be applicable to overflow sections as
well. In this case, the height of the dam shall be taken from the base of
the dam to the top of the spillway bridge for computing the period as well
as shears and moments in the body of the dam. However, for the design
of the bridge and the piers, the horizontal seismic coefficients in either
direction may be taken as the design seismic coefficient for the top of the
dam worked out in 7.3.1 and applied uniformly along the height of the
pier.
7.4 Earth and Rockfill Dams and Embankments
7.4.1 General  It is recognized that an earth dam or embankment
vibrates when subjected to ground motion during an earthquake requiring
thereby a dynamic analysis of the structure for its design. Nevertheless,
currently accepted design procedure is based on the assumption that the
portion of the dam above the rupture surface is rigid. Therefore, the
method given in 7.4.2 which assumes additional horizontal and vertical
loads on the soil mass within the rupture surface shall be adopted. It is,
however, desirable to carry out dynamic analysis for final design of
important dams in order to estimate deformations in dams in probable
future earthquakes.
44
IS 2 1893  1984
7.4.2 Seismic Force on Soil Mass
7.4.2.1 The procedure for finding out the seismic coefhcient which
will depend upon the height of the dam and the lowest point of the
rupture surface shall be as follows:
a) Determine the fundamental period of the structure from the
formula:
where
T = fundamental period of the earth dam in s,
Ht = height of the dam above toe of the slopes,
P
=
mass density of the shell material, and
G = modulus of rigidity of the shell material.
NOTE  The quantity +fGT.
p IS the shear wave velocity through the mate
rial of the dam and may be used if known instead of p and G.
b) Determine S,/ g for this period T and 10 percent damping from
average acceleration spectrum curves given in Fig. 2.
c) Compute design seismic coefficient ah using 3.4.2.3 (b).
7.4.2.2 For checking slope failure with the lowest point of the
rupture surface at any depth y below top of dam, the value of equivalent
uniform seismic coefficient shall be taken as:
where
H = total height of the dam.
7.4.3 Stability of the Upstream Slope
7.4.3.1 The stability of the upstream slope of an earth or rockfill dam
shall be tested with full reservoir level with horizontal forces due to earth
quake acting in upstream direction and vertical forces due to earthquake
( taken as one half of horizontal ) acting upwards.
7.4.3.2 For preliminary design, a factor of safety of unity shall be
accepted as being adequate for ensuring stability of upstream slope. The
factor of safety need be tested only for failure surface which passes through
the lower half of the dam.
45
fS : 1893  1984
7.4.4 Stability of Downstream Slope  The provision of 7.4.3 shall also
apply in determining stability of the downstream slope except that the
horizontal force due to earthquake should be considered acting in the
downstream direction.
7.4.5 Miscellaneous  Earthquake forces shall not be normally included
in stability analysis for the construction stage or for the reservoir empty
condition. Hocvever, where the construction or operating schedule requi
res the reservoir empty condition to exist for prolonged periods, earth
quake forces may be included and may be calculated based on 50 percent
of the value obtained from 7.4.3 or 7.4.4.
Provisions in 7.4.3 and 7.4.4 modified to suit the conditions of empty
reservoir shall apply for testing the stability of the upstream and down
stream s!opes.
Junctions between spillways and abutments shall be constructed with
great care in view of the damage that may be caused by differential
vibrations of the dam and the spillway.
8. RETAINING WALLS
8.1 Lateral Earth Pressure  The pressure from earthfill behind retain
ing walls during an earthquake shall be as given in 8.1.1 to 8.1.4. In the
analysis, cohesion has been neglected. This assumption is on conservative

8.2 Effect of Saturation on Lateral Earth Pressure
8.2.1 For saturated earthfill, the saturated unit weight of the soil shall
be adopted as in the formulae described in 8.1.

in active and passive earth pressure during earthquakes shall be found
from expressions given in 8.1.1 and 8.1.2 with the following modifications:
a) The value of 6 shall be taken as 4 the value of 6 for dry backfill.
b) The value of A shall be taken as follows:
A = tanl$.)(%

c) Buoyant unit weight shall be adopted.
d) From the value of earth pressure found out as above, subtract the
value of earth pressure determined by putting @h=MV=h=O but
using buoyant unit weight. The remainder shall be dynamic
increment.
8.2.3 Hydrodynamic pressure on account of water contained in earthfill
shall not be considered separately as the effect of acceleration on water
has been considered indirectly.
8.3 Partially Submerged Backfill
8.3.1 The ratio of the lateral dynamic increment in active pressures to
the vertical pressures at various depths along the height of wall may be
taken as shown in Fig. 13.
The pressure distribution of dynamic increment in active pressures
may be obtained by multiplying the vertical effective pressures by the
coefficients in Fig. 13 at corresponding depths.

dynamic pressure increments in 8.1.1.2 and 8.1.3.1.

tia forces due to horizontal and vertical earthquake accelerations are the
products of the weight of wall and the horizontal and vertical s&mic
coefficients respectively ( see 3.4.2 and 3.4.5 ).

APPENDI X F
( Clnuse 3.4.2.1 and Table 2 )
SPECTRA OF EARTHQUAKE
Fl. GENERAL
Fl.1 Spectrum of an earthquake is the representation of the maximum
dynamic response of idealized structures during an earthquake. The idea
lized structure is a single degree of freedom system having a certain period
of vibration and damping. The maximum response is plotted against the
natural period of vibration and can be expressed in terms of maximum
absolute acceleration, maximum relative velocity or maximum relative dis
placement, For the purpose of design, acceleration spectra are very useful,
as they give the seismic force on a structure directly by multiplying it with
the generalized or modal mass of the structure.
F2. AVERAGE SPECTRA
F2.1 Prof. G. W. Housner has proposed average spectra on the basis of
studies on response spectra of four strongest earthquakes that have occurred
in USA ( see Fig. 2 which shows the average acceleration spectra ).
F2.2 To take into account the seismicity of the various zones, the ordi
nate of the average spectra are to be multiplied by a factor F,. This factor
F. depends on the magnitude, duration and form of the expected earth
quake, distance of the site from expected epicentre, soil conditions and
resistance deformation characteristics of the structure, etc. For elastic
design with permissible increase in stresses or load factors as given in 3.3,
approximate values of this factor are given in Table 2.
NOTE  It may be pointed out that during the expected maximum intensity of
earthquake in the various seismic zones, structures will be subjected to a bigger force.
But the capacity of the structure in plastic range will be available for absorbing the
kinetic energy imparted by the earthquake. Therefore, the structural details are to
be worked out in such a manner that it can undergo sufficient plastic deformations
before failure [see 1.2 and3.3.2 (b) ( Note 3 ) 1.
F3. DAMPING IN STRUCTURES
F3.1 The variety of damping displayed in different types of structures has
made the choice of a suitable damping coefficient for a given structure
largely a matter of judgement. However, some values are given below to
indicate the order of damping coefficient in various types of structures:
a) Steel structures 2 to 5 percent of critical
b) Concrete structures 5
,, 10 ,> 7, >,
64
c) Brick structures in cement mortar 5 to 10 percent of critical
d) Timber structures 2 5
,,
e) Earthen structures 10 ), 30 :: :: ::
NOTE  It may be mentioned here that in the elastic range, damping displayed
by structures is much lower than that given above. It may lie between 1 and 4 per
cent for the above type of structures at low stresses. The values given thus presume
some inelastic deformations or fine cracking to take place when this order of damp
ing will occur. However, for obtaining design seismic coefficient, the values of damp
ing mentioned in relevant clauses shall apply.
F4. METHOD OF USING THE SPECTRA
F4.1 Let the period of a structure be 0.8 second and the damping 5 per
cent critical. Further let the soilfoundation system give factor, B = 1.2
and let the structure have an importance factor, I = 1.5. Referring to
Fig. 2, the spectral acceleration, S, is O12 g. If the structure has mass
M= 12.0 kg sets/ cm and is to be located in Zone V, the design horizon
tal seismic coefficient ah would be [ see 3.4.2.3 (b)]:
ah = P IF, (&/ id
= 1.2 x 1.5 x 0.4 x 0.12
= 0,086 4
Therefore, horizontal seismic force
P = tLh Mg
= 0.086 4 x 12.0 x 981
= 1 017.1 kg
APPENDIX G
( Clause 7.2.1.1 )
VARIATION OF THE COEFFICIENT C, WITH SHAPES
AND DEPTHS
Gl. The increase in water pressure on the surface of dam due to hori
zontal earthquake forces depends upon the shape of the dam and varies
with depth. In the equation specified in 7.2.1.1, the coefficient C, defines
the magnitude and distribution of the increased pressure.
G2. G’s is a function of the shape of dam and, is independent of the mag
nitude and intensity of the earthquake.
G3. The magnitude of C, for various shapes of dams, illustrated in Fig.
14 to 18, assuming water as incompressible, has been established by
laboratory experiments. For more detailed analysis, these values may be
adopted.

CRITERIA FOR EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT DESIGN OF STRUCTURES
( Fourth Revision )
0. FOREWORD
0.1 This Indian Standard. ( Fourth Revision) was adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 16 November 1981, after the draft finalized by the Earthquake Engineering Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. plain, Western India, 0.2 HimalayanNagalushai region, IndoGangetic Kutch and Kathiawar regions are geologically unstable parts of the country and some devastating earthquakes of the world have occurred there. A major part of the peninsular India has also been visited by strong earthquakes, but these were relatively few in number and had considerably lesser intensity. The earthquake resistant design of structures taking into account seismic data from studies of these Indian earthquakes has become very essential,. particularly in view of the heavy construction programme at present all over the country. It is to serve this purpose that IS : 18931962 ‘Recommendations for earthquake resistant design of structures’ was published and subsequently revised in 1966. 0.2.1 As a result of additional seismic data collected in India and further knowledge and experience gained since the publication of the first revision of this standard, the Sectional Committee felt the need to revise the standard again incorporating many changes, such as revision of maps showing seismic zones and epicentres, adding a more rational approach for design of buildings and substructure of bridges, etc. These were covered in the second revision of IS : 1893 brought out in 1970. 0.2.2 As a result of the increased use of the standard, considerable amount of suggestions were received for modifying some of the provisions of the standard and, therefore, third revision of the standard was brought out in 1975. The following changes were incorporated in the third revision: 3
as far as possible.4 It is not intended in this standard to lay down regulations so that no structure shall suffer any damage during earthquake of all magnitudes. While this standard is intended for earthquake resistant design of normal structures. provided certain simple precautions are taken in the construction. base shear and modal analysis have been introduced. There might be cases of less importance and relatively small structures for which no analysis need be made.1984 The a> standard incorporated seismic zone factors ( previously given as multiplying factors in the second revision ) on a more rational basis. 0. For example.

It has been endeavoured to ensure that. it has to be emphasized that in the case of special structures detailed investigation should be undertaken.1 Though the basis for the design of different types of structures is covered in this standard. taking into during earthquakes.

In the clauses for design of multistoreyed building the coefficient of flexibility was given in the form of a curve with respect to period of buildings. without structural damage to shocks of moderate intensities and without total collapse to shocks of heavy intensities. A more rational formula was used to combine for determination modal shears. structures are able to respond. 0. dams were modified. it is not implied that detailed dynamic analysis should be made in every case. construction of a type which forces.4. In this revision a number of Important basic modifications with respect to load factors. A new concept of performance factor depending on the structural framing system and brittleness or ductility of construction has been incorporated. suitably proportioned diagonal bracings in the vertical panels of steel and concrete structures add to the resistance of frames to withstand earthquake seismic areas. unless otherwise specified in the relevant clauses. for the varying b) 4 Importance factors were introduced to account degrees of importance for various structures.

The design value chosen for a particular structure is obtained by multiplying the basic horizontal seismic coefficient for that zone. important to take necessary precautions in the design of structures so that they are safe against such secondary effects also.

Though the magnitudes of different earthquakes which have occurred in the past are known to a reasonabIe amount of accuracy. will not suffer serious damage. an entirely scientific basis for zoning in view of the scanty data available.8 In the formulation of this standard due weightage has been given to international coordination among the standards and practices prevailing in different countries in addition to relating it to the practices in the field in this country. the intensities of the shocks caused by these earthquakes have so far been mostly estimated by damage surveys and there is little instrumental evidence to corroborate the conclusions arrived at. necessary that ductility must be built into the structures since brittle structures will be damaged more extensively. 0. therefore.

The Sectional Committee has. It is pointed out that structures will normally experience more severe ground motion than the one envisaged in the seismic coefficient specified in this standard. etc.1984 a structure which is properly designed and detailed according to good construction practice.7. therefore. However. Maximum intensity at different places can be fixed on a scale only on the basis of the observations made and recorded after the earthquake and thus a zoning map which is based on the maximum intensities arrived at.1 The Sectional Committee has appreciated that there cannot be. and to modify such an average idealized isoseismal map in the light of tectonics ( see Appendix B ).
