American Society of Civil Engineers, Jan 1, 2000 - Technology & Engineering - 72 pages
Flood Resistant Design and Construction provides minimum requirements for design and construction of structures located in flood hazard areas. These requirements apply to construction related to structures, including subsequent work to such structures, and to substantial repair or improvement of an existing structure that is not a historic structure. Topics include basic requirements for flood hazard areas, high risk flood areas, flood hazard areas subject to high velocity wave action, design, materials, dry and wet floodproofing, utilities, means of egress, and accessory structures.
