Dear Vipul,
I guess a time has come when maybe we need to pool resources and form a
couple of formidable consortiums to be able to fight the Big Fish>Any takers
of the idea?

Dear Mr. Amit Dutt

I share your concerns over lack of resources available to the Indian
Consulting engineer in investing in expensive programs. However we must
not forget that we need to be competitive at the global level (both
commercially and technically) in the future &amp; we must start looking
towards that direction sooner than later--soon it may become a survival
issue.

Dear Sefians,


I wish to share Mr. Sikandar Hayat Siddiqi 's deep
concern over the neglect of  designing structures with regard to
Routine
Design of Earthquake Resistant Structures. But a Performance Based
Seismic Evaluation ,Push Over Analysis ( Non linear

Analysis) &amp; other sophisticated methods are easier said
than done
because of lack of resources etc.

Firstly the capability of the average  practicing structural
engineers &amp;
consultants in evaluating the ultimate seismic capacities &amp; going
for a
non linear analysis is very limited because a major  portion of
these
topics are  been dealt only at the research level &amp; not well
established


Secondly the above said analysis will require very powerful &amp;
costly
softwares beyond the reach of most of the organizations. The most
commonly &amp; popular software of structural engineering software in
India
seems to be STAAD PRO ,but how many people have really used it for non
linear analysis is a big question.

Thirdly &amp; probably the most important factor is that the client is
not
willing to give the time which will be required for the kind of
analysis
you are have suggested.



I feel as the awareness to seismic hazard &amp; seismic risk increases
over
the years within the engineering community &amp; also the nation as a
whole
the above methods of analysis  shall find their true place.



With regards



Amit Dutt
