Event Location
International Conference on Earthquake Resistant Construction Practices (ICEQRCP) 2012 is Organised by Department of Civil Engineering, Dr. M.G.R. Educational and research institute university. The International Conference on earthquake Resistant Construction Practices aims to bring leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars onto a common platform to exchange and share their experiences and research results about Earthquake and construction practices and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.

Conference Objectives:
  • To create awareness of various issues regarding seismic hazards, earthquake engineering education and social preparedness.
  • To improve the ability of civil engineering professionals in analysis, design and construction of earthquake-resistant structures through exposure of concepts and ideas.
  • To highlight the design guidelines provided in various methods of retrofitting and health monitoring of existing structures.
Conference topics & guidelines
Conference topics
  • Analysis and design of structures subjected to earthquake loads.
  • Behavior & Design of reinforced concrete structures under earthquake loads.
  • Symmetry of building.
  • Avoidance of "soft storey" & design of "shear walls”.
  • Design of masonry and their behavior under earthquake loads.
  • Behavior of steel structures (stacks) and long span bridges.
  • Strengthening of structures.
  • Repair and retrofitting of damaged structures.
  • Testing in-situ strength of existing buildings to withstand cyclic loads.

Guidelines - abstract / paper submission

The soft copy of the extended abstract (not exceeding 300 characters) should be submitted before the deadline and the authors of selected papers will be intimated through email. The authors should kindly restrict their papers to EIGHT A4 pages including text, figures, tables and references. It should be typed in single column with single line spaces, Times New Roman with font size 12. The authors can mail the papers to

Highlights of the conference:

The problem of protecting the built environment in earthquake-prone regions involves not only the optimal design and construction of new facilities, but also the upgrading and rehabilitation of existing structures including heritage buildings. One of the most catastrophic earth quake occurred on January 26, 2001, India's 52nd Republic Day, at 08:46 AM local time (3:16 UTC) and lasted for over two minutes. The earthquake reached a magnitude of 7.7 and has caused a destruction of 3 lac houses and damaged 7 lac buildings, though all the Indian standard codes were in Practice (IS-4326) during 2001. The loss of life and property were mainly due to the ignorance of existing codes at the time of construction. Hence to create awareness among all the stake holders of the building industry, it is mandatory to follow such IS codes by satisfying the INTEGRITY AND DUCTILITY.
