Earthquakes can happen anywhere in the world. In some places, the frequency of occurrence is very large may be at the plate boundaries such as the Himalayan region, and in some places, it is low like in the southern part of India. The knowledge has not been reached to predict the earthquakes precisely. An earthquake can cause large destruction in industrial structures, systems, and components (SSCs). For example, the Bhuj earthquake in 2001 caused large damage to the petrochemical industry, fertilizer industry, etc., and the loss due to the unavailability of the plants was also large. If the industry is handling large toxic and poisonous gases, the large damage will also affect the public around the plant. To minimize this, the loading generated due to the earthquake should be properly accounted for.
