Storm Surge and Wave Load Analysis

A private property Owner proposed development of a new hotel to front Tampa Bay.  Coastal Tech was engaged to identify appropriate loads for design storm conditions and demonstrate compliance with State and local Codes.

Coastal Tech:

  • evaluated the storm surge flooding and storm wave loads upon the building(s) at the Project site associated with the 100-year return period storm event, consistent with FEMA,ASCE7-10, ASCE24-05, the Florida Building Code 2010, and City of Tampa Codes.
  • employed numerical modeling techniques – including the FEMACHAMP model, supplemented by simplified calculation methods to prescribe localized surge, wave, and eroded grade conditions at the Project site;
  • assessed the expected post-storm ground elevation, Stillwater Elevation, hydrostatic loads, hydrodynamic loads, and wave loads in accordance with FBC2010, ASCE7-10, ASCE24-05, and the FEMA Coastal Construction Manual;
  • prepared a letter report summarizing results to facilitate hotel design and demonstrate compliance with City of Tampa codes.

Fees:   $22,500

Completion:  2016-2017
