Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In developing countries like India, where a majority of the population is below the poverty line, people live mostly in non-engineered structures, which are one of the first casualties during cyclones. A case study presented here stresses on settlement and unit resistance to cyclone and its suitability to life-style of the community. The guidelines presented at the end would be applicable in the similiar situations elsewhere in the tropical belt.
