FEMA P-807, Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Multi-Unit Wood-Frame Buildings with Weak First Stories (ATC-71-1 Project)  edit    delete

Category: Webinar
Description: This Webinar is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program (NETAP), which is a mechanism for delivering direct assistance to the public to increase their knowledge and ability to analyze their risk, make a plan, and take actions aimed at reducing their earthquake risk and supporting overall community resilience. NETAP is not a grant or cooperative agreement program, but a contract managed by FEMA to rapidly deploy training and technical assistance to organizations and communities. For more information about NETAP please visit the FEMA website by clicking here.

Purpose. The Purpose of the Webinar is to introduce participants to the FEMA P-807 report, Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Multi-Unit Wood-Frame Buildings with Weak First Stories, developed by the Applied Technology Council for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2011. The report presents guidelines for cost-effective retrofit procedures for a vulnerable class of buildings with a history of poor performance in earthquakes. These buildings have weak ground stories with few walls, required to accommodate parking or commercial uses. The upper structure, with numerous walls, tends to be strong, but brittle. This relative weakness concentrates damage and deformations in the ground story. These structures are prevalent in the seismically active regions of the Pacific Northwest and California. The guidelines have been developed to be easy to use while providing a practicable and cost-effective means to reduce damage and the risk of collapse. While sophisticated and extensive nonlinear response history analyses form the technical basis of the guidelines, the procedure itself is straightforward and prescriptive.

Intended Audience. This Webinar on FEMA P-807 has been designed for building officials, engineers, architects, and others who need information on seismic retrofit of weak-story wood-framed buildings.
