  • Background Reports: Metallurgy, Fracture Mechanics, Welding, Moment Connections and Frame Systems Behavior

    Go to Resource
    In response to structural concerns raised in the aftermath of the Northridge Earthquake of 1994, FEMA entered into a cooperative agreement with the SAC Joint Venture to perform a problem-focused study of the seismic performance of welded steel moment connections and to develop interim recommendations for professional practice. The design of moment frames for seismic loading relies upon the steel beams to form plastic hinges which dissipates the earthquake energy. The ductility and strength of the steel beam and the connection of the beam to the column govern the ability of the framing system to absorb the earthquake's energy. This report discusses the roll of the steel making practice upon the ductility and strength of the beam and the changes that are occurring in the production of hot rolled steel sections.

    This report sets forth an action plan for the development of new design procedures and guidelines directed towards the establishment of performance based seismic design. These procedures are directed towards overcoming key deficiencies in our current design practice.
  • Estimating Losses From Future Earthquakes Panel Report

    Go to Resource
    An earthquake loss estimate is a forecast of the effects of a hypothetical earthquake. Depending on its purpose, a loss study may include estimates of deaths and injuries; property losses; loss of function in industries, lifelines, and emergency facilities; homelessness; and economic impacts. This report focuses primarily on loss estimates of the type funded by FEMA. They apply to an urban area or region and are intended primarily for use by local and state governments for disaster response and mitigation planning and the formulation of near-and long-term strategies for earthquake hazard reduction. However, the same basic methods, and many of the techniques for carrying out portions of these basic methods, also apply to other types of loss estimates.
  • A Benefit-Cost Model for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings

    Go to Resource
    FEMA is pleased to have sponsored the preparation of this publication on a cost/benefit methodology for the seismic rehabilitation of hazardous buildings. The publication is one of a series that FEMA is sponsoring to encourage local decisionmakers, the design professions, and other interested groups to undertake a program of mitigating the risks that would be posed by existing hazardous buildings in case of an earthquake. Publications in this series examine both engineering and architectural aspects as well as societal impacts of such an undertaking. They are prepared under the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program.

  • Notice to Congress: Monthly Updates on Flood Mapping for 2014

    Go to Resource

    Through its Risk MAP program, FEMA consistently releases new flood maps and data, giving communities across America access to helpful, authoritative data that they can use to make decisions about flood risk. The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (Biggert-Waters) as amended with the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014, directs FEMA to notify Members of Congress when constituents in their District are and will be affected by a flood mapping update. Beginning in June 2014 and recurring each month in accordance with these requirements, FEMA produces a summary document to serve as notification to Congress and provide details of mapping milestones reached in the previous month and an estimated schedule of certain mapping activities anticipated in the next three months.

  • Eligibility of Flood Risk Reduction Measures under the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Programs

    Go to Resource
    These documents provide guidance concerning the types of physical flood risk reduction projects FEMA may fund under its Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs. Flood risk reduction measures minimize potential flood-related damages to structures, including home and businesses, and infrastructure, including roads and critical services such as water and power generation, hospitals and emergency response. The purpose of the Policy is to more fully describe flood protection options available under the Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs.
