Due to this. expressing the result of a test or analysis. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard. For the purpose of deciding whether a particuhw requirement of this standard is complied with. Cyclones associated with high speed winds followed by heavy rains and accompanied by surge have been causing untold misery to the populace and wide spread devastation of properties in the coastal belts of India. after the draft finalized by the Cyclone Resistant Structures Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. observed or calculated. CED 57 FOREWORD This Indian Standard was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards. Damage to houses is most responsible for loss of life and thus the need to have greater emphasis on the safety of houses. The composition of the Committee responsible for the formulation of this standard is given in Annex B. Andhra Pradesh. Cyclonic storms generally extend up to about 60 km after striking the coast. The coastal regions of Tamil Nadu. The information collected will help in compilation of database. The frequency of cyclonic storms is more along the East coast as compared to the West coast of India.— . need has been felt to evolve national standard for design and construction of cyclone resistant structures so as to ensure desirable level of safet y. Orissa and West Bengal on the East coast and Gujarat on the West coast are cyclone prone. the final value. Considering that the existing housing stock needs retrofitting to enhance its cyclonic resistance. this standard lays down the guidelines and proformae for survey of existing houses their typology and carrying outpost cyclone damage evaluation in buildings.

whereas Proforma 11A. 2 BASIC PRINCIPLES NOTE — Proforma 11A may be used in stand alone mode. It has to be filled for each unit. It is therefore suggested that a minimum of 10 percent of the total houseshtildings may be surveyed with the following maximum numbers for each category. :50 :25 : 10 NOTE — For the purpose of this standard. FOR SURVEY 2.. the same may be divided in distinct zones up to a maximum of five and treating each zone as one unit. 1S 15498:2004 ‘Guidelines for improving the cyclonic resistance of low rise houses and other buildingaktudeses’ may be referred to for non-engineered.+- . semi-engineered and engineered construction.1 The aim is not to prepare a detailed plan of an entire unit but to gain information on general layout of 1 . 2.4 Educational Background of Surveyors Keeping in view the tectmical input required by the person conducting the survey.IS 15499:2004 Indian Standard GUIDELINES FOR SURVEY OF HOUSING AND BUILDING TYPOLOGY IN CYCLONE PRONE AREAS FOR ASSESSMENT OF VULNERABILITY OF REGIONS AND POST CYCLONE DAMAGE ESTIMATION 1 SCOPE Proforma IIC This standard covers the guidelines for survey of housing and building typology in cyclone prone areas for assessment of vulnerability of regions and post cyclone damage estimation. Non-engineered Semi-engineered Engineered 2. 2.-.arrdProforma IIB (one for each building) may be filled when it is required to retrofit the buildings for improved cyclone resistance Proforma IIC shall always be tilled in conjunction with Proforma IIB. Proforma HA To obtain statistical information for the purpose of characterization of building typology.1 The guidelines and proformae are intended to identify the preparedness and accessibility of the area. Proforma IIB To obtain information about structural system employed and various typical member size so that inadequacies of the building can be determined and suitable retrofitting measures designed. Civil engineering (Diploma) with at least three years of exengineering perience/Civil (Degree).3 Sample Size It is desired that fairly representative sample size is needed to be taken for establishing the building typology for any unit. FOR FILLING UP THE 3. establishing building typology along with the weakness in structural schemes. The proformae may also be used for carrying out a post cyclone damage estimation of buildings. inadequacies in the materials and methods of construction so that an appropriate cost effective scheme of retrofitting may be designed for improved cyclone resistance and thus decreased vulnerability to any future damage. In case of district headquarters or big cities. .2 Different sets of proformae as given at Annex A have been evolved keeping one village as unit. the following minimum educational background and experience is recommended for the surveyo~ : Graduation. The following proformae maybe got filled in stand-alone mode or in conjunction depending upon the purposes of survey: Proforma I To identify the preparedness of the unit for handling a cyclone disaster and the accessibility of the area for the purpose of relief. To record the extent and nature of damage suffered to buildings only for post cyclone damage survey in a region.*. Proforma I Proforma 11A : Graduation/Civil engineering (Diploma). Proforma Proforma IIB IIC 3 GUIDELINES PROFORMA : : Civil engineering (Diploma).

posts titled with gaps noticed in soil. a back analysis maybe carried out to make an estimate of prevailing wind speeds at the time of damage. Each zone thus identified shall have one general data sheet. Proforma IIC covers the damage survey of the buildings in the post disaster scenario. a few sheets (< 25 percent) blown off. spacing of connections etc. for improved cyclone resistance. 4. 3. Medium – Roof/Wall cladding in bad condition or blown off partially (<50 percent). and sagging of roof. some elements of trusshrildings bent noticeable sagging of roof truss. In first case. noticeable cracks in tie beams. namely. and appended with the survey record. if needed. Proforma 11A covers the statistical information about buildings for the purposes of characterization of building typolog y. structure shapes. 4. Heavy – Wall tilted with or without cracks. The information gathered in this section assesses the cyclone vulnerability of the area and its preparedness to handle the disaster. Total – Failure of a few trusses. plaster peeled off. for example m 4. – Few settlement cracks below plinth level.

Heavy – Roof/Wall cladding blown off with damage to runners. sheet broken aver small area. 3. inhabited area. For cities and towns. materials and methods of construction are important factors considered. – A portion of foundation fully separated. semi-engineered and engineered. large tilting/pull out of posts. A map of the village zone be procured from local authorities showing important land marks. separation between tie beam and pile. non-engineered. Medium – Large number of J bolts disturbed. The questionnaire is so designed that if needed. AC Sheets and Other Sheets Marginal – A few connections loosened or damaged. Heavy – AC sheets blown off. failure of a few joints. the size of the habitat may be large and therefore the delineation of zones has to be decided prior to undertaking the survey and consistent with the requirements of adequate information on building typology. – Large settlement cracks below plinth level. moisture penetration noticed on inside wall. i Total – Failure of the wall.4 Filling Up of Proformae The proformae contains basically two types of questions. Buildings to be surveyed should be ca~efuliy chosen so that all important building shapes are fully covered.2 Damage to WaUs Made of Mud. no tilt.
