We have been discussing seismic design of building type structures thru
this forum and consequently Part I of the latest edition of IS 1893 is
the focus of attention. Engineers like me working also on non-building
type structures like liquid retaining ones have been eagerly awaiting
other Parts dealing with these. We have to take recourse to
International Codes like IBC 2003/UBC for seismic analysis of these
structures. Even the old 1984 version does not fully address all the
issues concerning the modeling and behaviour of this Category,
especially under-ground structures.

Even the main Code IS 3370 is being awaited for thorough revision,
though corresponding BS and US Codes have undergone significant
revisions incorporating the latest methods of limit state design.
Knowing about these new ways about designing makes it difficult to
follow the old highly conservative provisos of old Codes, just to
satisfy some proof-checking authorities who are only familiar with these
old Indian Codes/would accept only Indian Codes.



Can we know from the concerned people/authorities the progress and
status of bringing out the revisions on these important Codes/Parts. Are
any Drafts being worked upon, especially IS 3370?

Dear Mr. Desai:

The draft code prepared under the IITK-GSDMA Project on Building
Codes for seismic forces on liquid retaining tanks has been sent by
BIS for comments and suggestions. The document is available at NICEE
web site. Hence, it is expected that a slightly modified version of
the same may eventually be adopted by BIS.

You are welcome to see that, comment on it and send those comments
either to me at codes@iitk.ac.in or write on it at SEFI discussion
forum.

Best regards,

SKJ
