Dear Colleagues

The IITK team led by Dr. C. Durgesh Rai deserve commendation for taking
the initiative and preparing a much needed document, "Draft Code with
Commentary on Seismic Evaluation and Strengthening of Existing
Buildings". By providing the e-Conference forum, the organisers have
wisely enabled exchange of views and thoughts.

Steel buildings/structures are clearly outside the purview of the code.
In that case, the title of the code and the foreword should be
explicit.

I strongly feel that the code should encompass steel buildings also.
"FEMA 352 - Recommended Post-Earthquake Evaluation and Repair Criteria
for Welded Steel Moment-Frame Buildings" is an interesting reference.

On the lighter side, I miss the 'Contents' page very much which would
make reading easier. May be it is a permissible drift in the draft!


Kind regards

Siva
