The CEA-EDA-01 report, Earthquake Damage Assessment and Repair Guidelines for Residential Wood-Frame Buildings, Volume 1 – General Guidelines, was funded by the California Earthquake Authority. (Published 2020, 326 pages)
The Earthquake Damage Assessment and Repair Guidelines for Residential Wood-Frame Buildings describe the process of identifying, evaluating, and repairing common earthquake damage in typical residential wood-frame houses and are intended to increase the efficiency, consistency, and reliability of the earthquake damage assessment and repair process. The documents are an integrated two-volume series that cover common earthquake damage, including cosmetic and structurally significant damage, as well as earthquake-induced permanent ground deformation.
Volume 1 (CEA-EDA-01) is intended to be used by insurance claim representatives, building contractors, homeowners, and others familiar with construction and repair. Volume 2 (CEA-EDA-02) is intended to be used by structural and geotechnical engineers, and others with relevant technical experience. The Guidelines help users create a conceptual scope of repair for a wood-frame house damaged by an earthquake.
The documents build and expand upon previous work conducted through the Consortium of Universities for Research in Earthquake Engineering (CUREE), which led to the publication of two documents for the assessment and repair of earthquake-damaged residential wood-frame buildings. These documents, commonly referred to as the CUREE Guidelines, have now been superseded by the two-volume series, Earthquake Damage Assessment and Repair Guidelines for Residential Wood-Frame Buildings.
CEA documents are available online free of charge. The above cost is the cost of printing and handling for a printed version of the document. A free electronic copy of CEA-EDA-02 can be obtained here. Printed versions of CEA-EDA-02 can be ordered here.
