These are some factors recommended for safety of building in earthquake prone area.
  • R. C. C . band  with the size 75 mm to 100 mm thick  should be provided at plinth level lintel level and roof level.
  • Provide R.C.C. band in case of trusses or rafter to connect all the columns and walls for protection against earth quake.
  • Bricks should be first class bricks and having minimum crushing strength 105 Kg. per sq. cm.
  • Sand used for making cement mortar should be clean free from silt, vegetable matter, and other foreign matter. 
  • The ratio of cement  sand mortar in brick work should be 1:4  but not less than 1:6 in any case. 
  • The material used in cement concrete  should be according to the specification and the mix should be 1:5:3.
  • Mild steel used in R. C. C. work should be  tor  or ribbed and properly tested in the testing laboratory.
  • The cement used in construction work should befresh not effected by moisture and manufactured by reputed firm and not from local plant.
  • The bricks used in masonry should be properly soaked in water.
  • All construction work should be done by skilled mason, carpenter and blacksmith etc.
  • All the building members should be properly connected each others.
  • Proper curing should be done during construction work for obtaining maximum strength.
