Earthquake zones of India
Sixth Revision. ICS India is prone to strong earthquake shaking, and hence earthquake resistant design is essential. The Committee has considered an earthquake zoning map based on the maximum intensities at each location as recorded from damage surveys after past earthquakes, taking into account, a known magnitudes and the known epicentres see Annex A assuming all other conditions as being average; and b tectonics see Annex B and lithology see Annex C of each region. The Seismic Zone Map see Fig.

This feature enables one to generate seismic loads per the IS specifications using a static equivalent approach per Part 1 for building structures. The seismic load generator can be used to generate lateral loads in the X and Z directions only. Y is the direction of gravity loads. This should be a value between 0 zero and 1. This is followed by the magnification factor, f18 required for reference loads.
