Disaster Resistant Building

Disaster means occurrence of uncontrolled, painful and serious conditions. There are various natural disasters like:
Volcanic eruptions
Tsunami (a long high sea wave generated by an earthquake)
Earthquakes, cyclone and fire needs special considerations in building design and construction since they are more frequent, widespread and more disastrous. In this chapter this aspect of building design and constructions are discussed.
