Free Electronic Resource Available on Reducing Risks of Earthquake Damage
Posted by Tasha Weiss on July 19, 2011 at 10:09 AM.

The Applied Technology Council (ATC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) introduce a free electronic document for use by non-engineers titled, “FEMA E-74, Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage; A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition.”

 

This guide explains the sources of earthquake damage that can occur in nonstructural components and provides information on effective methods for reducing risk associated with nonstructural earthquake damage. It is a valuable resource particularly for building owners, facility managers, maintenance personnel, store or office managers, corporate or agency department heads, and homeowners.

 

The electronic document and a table of contents can be found on FEMA’s website, here. Download the PDF from the FEMA Library.

 

AISC recently released a free electronic document, “Facts for Steel Buildings Number 3: Earthquakes and Seismic Design,” the newest installment in the Facts series. Download the PDF from AISC’s website. For more information on this publication visit our previous news post, here.
