Abstract

Disasters are biggest enemy of human beings which affects not only human life but the damage and destruction of their constructions which they have constructed, which causes heavy losses of life as well as their wealth and property. These natural disaster such as earth quake is unpredictable, that practically impossible to predict their time of occurrence, their location, intensities and other characteristics related to it. Various attempts have been made and still alterations and modification in construction techniques are going on so as to reduce the damage of structures and which can able to survive to those natural attacks without any loss of life or say major structural damages. Since earthquakes are still unpreventable and unpredictable, the option left is to develop the construction techniques which help in the construction of earthquake resistant structures. Accordingly to that, various scientific researches are going on, in different parts of the world, so that they incorporate these techniques to fulfill the needs required for the practically feasibly construction of earthquake resistant structures.
