Dear Dr.,
It  is really interesting to note the beautiful buildings in India. But I am of the doubt about the buildings especially the i-flex building about the Seismic resistivity. Will it handle the vulnerable effects of the earthquake since it is cantilevered in all round?

Dear Dr.,
Can you please let us know the structural consultant(s) involved in these projects.

Regarding seismic resistivity, i agree with Rangarajan sir. I would like to inform that the L&T head quarters in chennai is also a cantilevered building. How well these buildings will resist EQ forces.
Regards,
PNP

Dear Er Rangarajan and Er PNP,

The material I posted is from the Source:http://www.engineeringcivil.com, which has been given in the original posting also.  I do not know any other detail.

reg. the HQ building in Chennai, there is a shell structure at the bottom  which is projecting from the support. When this building was constructed Chennai was not in high Seismic Zone. Now only it is designated aa Zone III, which is being disputed by many.

Regards
Subramanian

Dear DR.,
As you informed that the L & T headqrts building when designed ,Chennai was not under zone III. If so how the structure can be retrofitted to be one that will become a seismic resistance one for Zone III? As the whole building with central pillar is cantilevering and in an odd shape which certaily cause twisting moment due to EQ.

The same question is for the I-flex and other wonderful structures as posted.
