Compliance analysis for disabled access

Author: Han, C. S., Kunz, J. C., Law, K. H.
Year: 2002
Type: Generic

Abstract:

Accessibility regulations are federally enacted by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Design of buildings and facilities must comply with the guidelines developed by the authors of ADA. This paper discusses a hybrid approach using encoding prescriptive-based provisions and supplementing them with performance-based methods to support compliance and usability analysis for accessibility. The hybrid compliance analysis approach is applied to analyse a facility floor plan as a case example.
