IS-386 Introduction to Residential Coastal Construction
This independent study course will introduce you to basic
information about residential coastal construction, as presented in
Volume I of the Coastal Construction Manual. This multi-volume manual
identifies best practices for improving the quality of construction and
reducing the economic losses associated with coastal disasters.
Construction of Residential Buildings in Coastal Areas
4 PDH - Construction of residential buildings in
coastal zones presents challenges to the builder not usually
found in more inland locations. This course discusses the
construction aspects of those challenges, as well as basic
aspects of the coastal construction process.
Design of Residential Buildings in (High Wind) Coastal Areas
12 PDH - This course will review the design
process required for residential buildings (one to three-story)
to withstand hurricanes and other severe natural hazard events.
Determination of Site-Specific Loads for Residential Buildings
in Coastal Areas
6 PDH - This course will review the procedures
and formulas required to determine the appropriate forces which
residential buildings could become subjected to during
hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other severe natural
hazard events. The design procedures required to determine the
site specific design loads (forces) which will be applied to the
structure, is the basis of this course.
Prevention of Shoreline Erosion - Coastal Defense Schemes
3 PDH - This course was specifically designed to
introduce the basic design concepts behind various coastal
erosion defense schemes. Coastal structures are used in coastal
defense schemes with the objective of preventing shoreline
erosion and flooding of the adjacent coastal areas. Other
objectives include sheltering of harbor basins and harbor
entrances against waves, stabilization of navigation channels at
inlets, and protection of water intakes and outfalls. An
overview of the various types of coastal structures and their
application is covered in detail within this course.
Coastal Construction Manual: Principles And Practices Of Planning,
Siting, Designing, Constructing, And Maintaining Residential Buildings
In Coastal Areas This manual provides guidance for the design and
construction of coastal residential buildings that will be more
resistant to the damaging effects of natural hazards.
Hurricane / Coastal Construction
The purpose of this fact sheet is to provide some basic
guidance for the construction of homes in coastal, hurricane-prone areas
of the United Statesnamely the Gulf and Atlantic coastlines.
