Abstract:
In January 1975, the first report, "A Study of Seismic Risk for Nicaragua, Part I" was published under the present study. The second and final part of this study is presented herewith in two separate volumes. Report No. l2A is "A Study of Seismic Risk for Nicaragua, Part II, Commentary". Whereas Report No. l2B is "A Study of Seismic Risk for Nicaragua, Part II, Summary". 
In order to assist the reader in understanding the development of the proposed methodology, the following order of reading is suggested. 
1. Report l2B, Summary Volume. This provides an overview of seismic hazard zoning, the design methodology and sample design problems. 
2. Report l2A Commentary Volume. This volume provides detailed discussions on the development of seismic hazard maps (Chapter II), damage prediction and insurance risk (Chapter III) and the design methodology (Chapters IV through XIII). The summary of the design methodology development is given in Chapter IV. Each chapter begins with a description of the scope for that chapter. This should aid the reader in grasping the intent of the chapter.   The results presented in these reports representa recommended methodology. For formulation of a building regulation based on this methodology, further study and coordination with Nicaraguan architects, engineers and planners is needed.
