Reinforced concrete (RC) is the popular material for building construction in India. Also, construction in RC is considered to be labour intensive and requires lesser high-tech tools, infrastructure and skills than those in structural steel. Low and medium rise RC frame buildings with masonry infill are very common in urban India. The 2001 Bhuj earthquake is the first significant one in the past five decades to have struck the urban constructions of India in a big way, and recent 2015 Nepal earthquake to have provided revealing evaluation of the seismic resistance of engineered buildings. Most affected multi-storey buildings are 5 storeys high (G+4 storeys), and many up to 11 storeys (G+10 storeys); in most of the buildings, the ground storey is left open to accommodate the parking. Hence retrofitting of buildings is required to overcome the seismic deficiency
