Recent earthquakes, 18 Sep 2011, Sikkim earthquake, M6.9 and 1 May 2013 Doda earthquake, M5.8 produced two major effects, namely on buildings and on hill slopes. The maximum intensity of ground shaking experienced during these earthquakes was only about VI or less on the MSK scale. Considering the low intensity of ground shaking in the affected areas, the damage attributed was disproportionately higher. It is mainly due to high amplification in local site areas. In this regard, a research is carried out to understand the performance of buildings on hill slopes.
