I think that the only solution to the problem stated by Ms Sangeeta Wij is
inculcating high moral values and ethics in structural engineers.
Unfortunately these are not taught at the college level.

Subject: E-Conf on Earthquake Codes


Dear Colleagues:

The Structural Engineers Forum of India (www.sefindia.org) will conduct
an
e-conference on two earthquake codes: IS1893 and IS13920. The focus will
be
the documents developed under the IITK-GSDMA Project on Codes. Under
this
project, suggestions are made for revisions of these codes (some of the
recommended suggestions are quite substantial), a clause-by-clause
commentary has been developed, and some solved examples are provided on
application of the code. Dates of the e-conference are September  20 -
25,
2004. The e-conference will provide an opportunity to the professionals
to
discuss and debate these documents and make suggestions for further
improvement.

All the documents developed under IITK-GSDMA project are available at
the
web site www.nicee.org for comments and discussions. Colleagues are
encouraged to download these from the web site. HOwever, if you have
difficulty in downloading, please write urgently to codes@iitk.ac.in and
we
will send you these documents through email or on a CD.

We look forward to a vibrant e-conference and some constructive
discussions
on these two very important codes which are vital for ensuring safety of
our
built environment.

Dear All, Could anyone please do me favour by giving me names of some books on " Seismic analysis & Design of Flyovers" with Indian as well as British Standard specifications. That will certainly help me in elucidating my doubts. Regards, Hardik ChoksiMaster of Engineering [CIVIL-CASAD]Nirma Institute of TechnologyAll the news that matters. All the gossip from home.

Dear friends,

You may have already seen or downloaded three of Microsoft-Excel
spreadsheets, authored by me,  for RC column design titled,
'RECTCOLUMN.xls', 'CIRCOLUMN.xls', and  'BIAXCOLUMN.xls' which have been
there on SEFI web site since April 2004.

I wish to inform you that as a sequel to the above spreadsheets, a new
Excel spreadsheet authored by me titled 'ColEffLength.xls' has been
uploaded on to the SEFI web site recently.

I am sure you will obtain EXCEL-lent results from the above
spreeadsheets, and enjoy Excel-ling yourself in the structural design
work.

With best wishes,

Yours truly,

Hi Prateek,u r indeed welcome in this discussion forum and pl do
remember always that this forum is of everyone and by everyone.
However,abt masonry foundations, u have IS 4326 as probably the only
codal guideline that I am aware of for picking up permissible stress
values and the actual stresses to be worked out incl the ecc value etc
by the normal conventional method.Any eccentric foundation is unlikely
to pass if no tension is permitted in the masonry(in fact the proverbial
corner open and eccentric  foundations in houses is normally provided by
some w/o designing; otherwise I doubt even RCC eccentric corner fdns
will pass!
Anyways u can come back with the results of ur efforts to the forum.
Regards
