Seismic Waves: ROVER: New End-to-End Software for Managing Seismic Risk   [open pdf - 385KB]

Seismic Waves is a newsletter published by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program [NEHRP]. "The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has teamed with the Applied Technology Council (ATC) and private-sector partners to create a new tool to screen and evaluate buildings for seismic risk. Now available online and on CD-ROM, the Rapid Observation of Vulnerability and Estimation of Risk (ROVER) software automates two international standard paper-based methodologies: FEMA P-154, 'Rapid Visual Screening (RVS) of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards, and ATC-20, Post-earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings.'"
