COURSE TITLE: Flood Damage Resistant Materials
COURSE NO: T02-006
Flood Damage Resistant Materials
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the design, selection, and review of FEMA flood damage resistant material requirements.

 

The national flood insurance program (NFIP) has a primary goal of protecting buildings from flood damage.  In order to meet this goal, the federal emergency management agency (FEMA) has specific design requirements for new construction, as well as substantially damaged or substantially improved structures within special flood hazard areas. One key component of minimizing damage during the base flood is the use of flood damage resistant materials.

 

FEMA has established a methodology to evaluate and select materials that will lower a buildings vulnerability to flood damage.  Flood resistant materials are used to reduce damages resulting from prolonged contact of flood waters. All building materials that are below the base flood must meet certain criteria in order to be in compliance with the NFIP.

COURSE TITLE: Openings in Foundation Walls and Walls of Enclosures
COURSE NO: S03-015
Openings in Foundation Walls and Walls of Enclosures
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the design, selection, and review of FEMA compliant flood openings.

 

The national flood insurance program (NFIP) has a primary goal of protecting buildings from flood damage.  In order to meet this goal, the federal emergency management agency (FEMA) has specific design requirements for new construction, as well as substantially damaged or substantially improved structures within special flood hazard areas. One key component of minimizing damage during the base flood is the use of openings in foundation and enclosure walls in order to prevent structural collapse due to hydrostatic forces.

 

FEMA has established a methodology to design these flood openings that will lower a buildings vulnerability to flood damage. Flood openings perform the critical task of equalizing water levels on the inside and outside of walls.  This results in a reduction in the potential for differential pressure against walls that could result in failure.  All walls and enclosed areas below the base flood must meet certain criteria in order to be in compliance with the NFIP.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for practicing engineers, contractors, developers, governmental agencies, regulators, and all other personnel involved with the design, permitting and approval of structures near the floodplain.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the importance of flood openings
  • Familiarizing with the requirements for flood openings
  • Learning how flood openings affect flood insurance rates
  • Learning how to identify, select, size and locate flood openings
