ATC-45 Field Manual: Safety Evaluation of Buildings after Windstorms and Floods
The ATC-45 Field Manual provides guidelines and procedures to determine whether damaged or potentially damaged buildings are safe for use after wind storms or floods, or if entry should be restricted or prohibited. Formatted as an easy-to-use pocket guide, the Manual is intended to be used by structural engineers, building inspectors, and others involved in postdisaster building safety assessments. Advice is provided on evaluating structural, geotechnical, and nonstructural risks. Also included are procedures for Rapid Safety Evaluation, procedures for Detailed Safety Evaluation, information on how to deal with owners and occupants of damaged buildings, information on field safety for those making damage assessments, and example applications of the procedures.
