IK m K m Fig. Q.No. 12(a) K OR Find out the response of the multi-degree o f freedom system as shown in Fig.Q.No.l2(b)with the initial condition JC,<0) = * (0)and *,{0) = JC {G) = 0 2 2 m/2 m K/2 Fig. Q.No. 12(b) K What are the lessons learned from the past Indian earthquakes? What is the influence o f the same towards the development o f Indian seismic codes pertaining to Aseismic design? OR Explain briefly "Design Spectrum". What are the basic difference between Response Spectrum analysis and Time History analysis? Explain the behaviour o f soil under seismic loading? What is the effect o f soilstructure-interaction in the design o f important structures? OR What are the different types of structural systems? Explain the performance o f these different structures during earthquake. Consider a five-storey reinforced concrete (OMRF) office building plan is as shown in Fig.Q.No.15(a). The building floors are at 3.5m c/c. The building is located at
