Abstract

The Seismic Risk Assessment is generally carried out for an area which can either be a city, a part of city, a geographical region, administrative region, a state or a country as a whole. The main objectives of seismic risk assessment include quantification and estimation of the consequences of an earthquake event for an area under consideration. The consequences are quantified in terms of losses the area would suffer in the event of an earthquake. The Earthquake Disaster Management can be effectively planned and implemented only when the seismic risk assessment of the area under consideration has been conducted well before the occurrence of the earthquake event. The Earthquake Disaster Management is subdivided into three distinct time phases: pre disaster, during or just after the occurrence of disaster and post disaster management. Since the seismic risk assessment can be used for earthquake disaster management in all the three phases, therefore it is considered as an essential pre-requisite for effective earthquake disaster management.
