|HIGHLIGHTS OF ASCE 24-05 Flood Resistant Design and Construction|
ASCE 24 is a referenced standard in the International Building Code®. Any building or structure that falls within the scope of the IBC that is proposed in a flood hazard area is to be designed in accordance with ASCE 24. The International Residential Code® requires that dwellings in floodways be designed in accordance with ASCE 24, and the 2009 edition of the IRC will include an alternative that allows communities to require homes in V zones to be designed in accordance with ASCE 24.
