This course will provide technical information important to flood design for all types of buildings and all types of flood conditions. We will cover the minimum design and construction standards required by regulations. You will learn the current design methodologies for foundation issues for both riverine and coastal buildings. This course will cover the limitations of prescriptive solutions for flood-design problems. Flood load provisions of ASCE 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures and ASCE 24 Flood Resistant Design and Construction will be discussed. And you will learn how to retrofit existing buildings with flood-resistant features. As we learn more about this devastating hazard and communities strive to be more sustainable, flood provisions in state and federal regulations are changing, as well as design concepts and methodologies, making it essential for engineers to remain engaged with these changing methodologies.
