Homebuilders' Guide to Earthquake-Resistant Design and Construction
Title: Homebuilders' Guide to Earthquake-Resistant Design and Construction

ISBN: HOMGTEAR

From the publisher

This publication presents seismic design and construction guidance for one- and two- family houses in a manner that can be utilized by homebuilders, knowledgeable homeowners, and other non-engineers. The manual includes prescriptive building detail plans based on the state-of-the-art earthquake-resistant design for use by homebuilders and others in the construction of a non-engineered residential structure.

Further, the manual also uses the results of recent loss investigations as well as current research and analysis results to identify a number of specific above-code measures for improved earthquake performance along their associated costs. A typical modern house is used to illustrate the application and benefits of above-code measures. This manual replaces the Home Builders Guide to Seismic Resistant Construction (FEMA 232) published by FEMA in 1998.
