Seismic considerations : hotels and motels( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They provide guests with a "home away from home" and, consequently, are occupied 24 hours a day by individuals who generally are unfamiliar with the building and its egress routes. In addition, they may be occupied by a large number of people who are not registered guests because of the diverse activities that occur in this building type (e.g., conventions, parties, shopping). They can be very complex buildings combining the functions of a hotel with those of an office, restaurant, assembly hall, shopping area, and warehouse. After an earthquake, guests and visitors may be very confused, lights may be out, elevators will be inoperable, and hallways and room exits may be blocked by fallen furniture or debris
An action plan for reducing earthquake hazards of existing buildings( Book )

3 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This action plan for reducing earthquake hazards of existing buildings (Action Plan) was written with the support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the lead agency responsible for coordinating activities of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). The Action Plan was developed to fulfill a task identified in the NEHRP Five Year Plan for Fiscal Years 1985-89 that called for the creation of a coherent, comprehensive, and detailed plan for mobilizing federal resources and influence in the support of resolving the existing earthquake hazardous buildings problem. The purpose of this Action Plan is to reduce the potential loss of life and life-threatening injuries in earthquakes

Earthquake-resistant design concepts : an introduction to the NEHRP recommended seismic provisions for new buildings and other structures by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key ways a community protects itself from potential earthquake disasters is by adopting and enforcing a building code with appropriate seismic design and construction standards. The seismic requirements in U.S. model building codes and standards are updated through the volunteer efforts of design professionals and construction industry representatives under a process sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and administered by the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC). At regular intervals, the BSSC develops and FEMA publishes the NEHRP (National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program) Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures (referred to in this publication as the NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions or simply the Provisions). The Provisions serves as a resource used by the codes and standards development organizations as they formulate sound seismic-resistant design and construction requirements. The Provisions also provides design professionals, building officials, and educators with in-depth commentary on the intent and preferred application of the seismic regulations. The 2009 edition of the Provisions (FEMA P-750) and the building codes and consensus standards based on its recommendations are, of necessity, highly technical documents intended primarily for use by design professionals and others who have specialized technical training. Because of this technical focus, these documents are not clearly understandable to those not involved in design and construction. Nevertheless, understanding the basis for the seismic regulations contained in the nation's building codes and standards is important to many people outside this technical community including elected officials, decision-makers in the insurance and financial communities, and individual business owners and other citizens. This introduction to the NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions is intended to provide these interested individuals with a readily understandable explanation of the intent of the earthquake-resistant design and requirements of the Provisions

NEHRP (National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program) recommended seismic provisions for new buildings and other structures by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the goals of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) is to encourage design and building practices that address the earthquake hazard and minimize the resulting risk of damage and injury. Publication of the 2009 edition of the NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures (FEMA P-750) reaffirms FEMA's ongoing support of efforts to achieve this goal. First published in 1985, the 2009 edition of the Provisions marks the seventh in a series of updates to the document and several complementary publications. FEMA is proud to have sponsored this project conducted by the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) of National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) and continues to encourage the widespread dissemination and voluntary use of this state-of-art consensus resource document
