The CD contains a high-resolution version of the General Guidelines for the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage to Residential Woodframe Buildings (EDA-02) that prints in color; separate checklists, reformatted for convenient printing out; a PowerPoint overview of the Guidelines; and PDF copies of the following technical reports from the project:
EDA 01: Testing and Assessment of Epoxy Injection Crack Repair For
Residential Concrete Stem Walls and Slab-On-Grade
EDA 03: Cyclic Behavior and Repair of Stucco and Gypsum Woodframe Walls: Phase I
EDA 04: Workshop Proceedings: Effect of Earthquake-Induced Transient
Ground Surface Deformations on At-Grade Improvements
EDA 05: Seismic Compression of As-Compacted Fill Soils with
Variable Levels of Fines content and Fines Plasticity
EDA 07: Cyclic behavior and Repair of Stucco and Gypsum
Sheathed Woodframe Walls: Phase II
The extensively illustrated General Guidelines for the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage to Residential Woodframe Buildings provides an extensively documented and illustrated reference on the effects of earthquakes on residential woodframe buildings and detailed descriptions of major building components and common patterns of earthquake damage. It also includes checklists to assist with a systematic damage survey and guidance for retaining and working with technical consultants.
A preliminary version of General Guidelines for the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage to Residential Woodframe Buildings, was originally published by CUREE in April, 2004 and is now superceded by the 2007 published version.
The target audience of the General Guidelines is homeowners, contractors, insurance claims representatives, and other non-engineers involved in post-earthquake damage assessment of woodframe construction (although it also contains valuable reference information for engineers). A more detailed version intended for technical consultants engaged in post-earthquake damage assessment - Engineering Guidelines for the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage in Residential Woodframe Buildings, CUREE Publication No. EDA-06, is in progress.
The General Guidelines is based upon the most current engineering research and best practices related to assessment and repair of earthquake damage in woodframe construction. The publication is one result of a multi-year project involving academic institutions, commercial research laboratories, and practicing professionals under contract to CUREE that included physical testing to simulate earthquake damage and repair to residential construction, review of existing engineering knowledge and practice, and extensive peer review by independent expert members of the project’s Advisory Group. Major funding for the project was provided by the California Earthquake Authority.
According to the project manager who led the team developing the General Guidelines, Dr. John Osteraas of Exponent, Inc. in Menlo Park, California, “The General Guidelines are the result of the efforts of many experienced earthquake professionals. It is our hope that the information provided in the General Guidelines will improve the consistency and quality of post-earthquake damage assessment and repair, thereby facilitating rapid recovery in those areas of the U.S. damaged in future earthquakes.”
