We have also explained the techniques to assess our vulnerability to different disasters and the importance of conducting such assessment exercises. A case study of the CoEDMM building has been taken and with detailed formulae, it has been shown how much vulnerable the building is to which hazard.
Prologue: In this presentation, Department of Architecture and Planning discusses the work done on the risk and vulnerability assessment of the Mahatma Gandhi Central Library (MGCL) of our institute. The comparison between the construction and design with the NBC 2016 standards was presented. Some points came out regarding better evacuation setting of MGCL and to reduce the risk levels there. A thorough study of the library has made us aware of the present shortcomings and ways by which it can be resolved to make it more disaster resilient.
