Guidelines for preparation and submission of site specific seismic study report of river valley project to national committee on seismic design parameters

This guidelines deal with the preparation of site specific seismic study report of a river valley project and its submission to the National Committee on Seismic Design Parameters (NCSDP) for necessary approval. The guidelines will help in estimation of parameters to be used in seismic design, analysis and safety evaluation of new or existing dams and their appurtenant structures. It is also expected that the guidelines will bring uniformity in site specific seismic studies being carried out by different expert organizations.
