Re: Tsunami!

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


This is a free resource:

http://www.fema.gov/library/viewRecord.do?id=3463

It includes:  tsunami depth and velocity; different options for tsunami vertical evacuation structures; guidance on siting, spacing, sizing, and elevation considerations; determining tsunami and earthquake loads and related structural design criteria; and structural design concepts and other considerations.

Hope it helps.
