Cyclone Resistant Building Construction

Seminar Topic: Cyclone Resistant Building. Download full seminar report on Cyclone resistant building architecture for Civil Engineering seminar. Every year cyclones cause huge loss to property and lives around the world. The seminar report explains the measures should be taken in designing building cyclone-prone areas.

Cyclone Resistant Building Construction Seminar Reports

Tropical cyclones are one of the worst natural hazards faced by India. This seminar report provides mitigating efforts to cope up with the moderate disasters in the coastal areas. These natural hazards can never be averted hence we should learn to adapt them. Constructions of structures against natural hazards have always been encouraged. Planning and developments of new construction requirements for buildings are recommended in order to reduce the risk of structural damage in the future.
Cyclone Resistant Building Seminar Report Civil
The seminar report discusses a brief introduction to the design of different structural parts of a building to be safe in coastal areas such as roof, foundation, walls, etc. Some techniques of reducing the intensity of cyclone and modification of its path are also discussed. The seminar reports collect the ongoing efforts related to cyclone mitigation from a structural point proposing some recommendations for the design of buildings in cyclone prone areas. The seminar reports also provide a little introduction to modification of intensity of cyclone. 

Key principles of cyclone resistant construction

The following care should be taken in designing buildings in cyclone-prone areas:
  1. Foundations should be deeper.
  2. R.C.C. framed structures are to be preferred over load-bearing structures.
  3. Sloping roofs should be avoided.
  4. Cantilever projections should be avoided.
  5. Roof and parapet wall should be properly anchored to the columns and walls.
  6. The height of the buildings should be restricted.
  7. Suitable wind load should be considered in the building design.
  8. Openings in the wall should be less.
  9. The structure should not rest on loose soil.
  10. Plant trees around the house as windbreaks and reduce the flow of water, but not too close.
