 Terms of Reference (ToR) 


A major earthquake, measuring 7.8 magnitudes, struck off Gorkha, 80km northwest of Kathmandu on 25th April 2015 and a major aftershock, measuring 7.3 magnitudes, followed with the epicentre at Dolakha district, on 12th May 2015, left over half a million homes destroyed and many additional households damaged beyond repair requiring complete demolition. About 152,389 buildings damaged, 1,732 human lost their lives and around 13,000 people injured in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur districts combined which are out of the 14 severely affected districts identified by the government of Nepal.

The earthquake recovery and reconstruction program is taking pace and we are on the right track in supporting community reconstruction and resettlement However, still in order to implement our program as soon as possible in the agreed timeline, we need to overcome many challenges, one of which is the monsoon. Besides the delivery, capacity building of OXFAM staffs is also major area of activity. Structural analysis of building systems(both framed and load bearing) and understanding their relationships is important for shelter practitioners to overcome design related challenges in any circumstances. The monsoon time is the ideal time for organizing such trainings. Structural Analysis Program (SAP) is a general purpose finite element analysis program for structural analysis. The program can analyze structures that are subject to either static or dynamic loads. The structures can be described in terms of truss, frame, plate, shell, or combinations of elements.
