The provided data includes statistics for the flood depth and flood duration resistance for each component in terms of mean and standard deviation of this resistance along with their upper and lower bounds. Additionally, these components were assigned to prescribed damage states based on the description provided in the paper in Table (2). Component descriptions are also provided to indicate how each dataset was developed. Some assumptions related to the flood depth and duration resistance are from van de Lindt and Taggart [1,2] and others are from the experimental investigation by Aglan [3]. Additionally, some engineering assumptions related to flood depth and duration were made by the authors based on engineering judgment to be able to create a full probabilistic damage model; these are explicitly stated in the manuscript. The mean unit price of each component was also provided based on data collected from different online sources that use an extensive cost database from contractors biding all over the US such as Home Advisor [4], Home Guides [5], and UpCodes [6]. These source gives the prices in terms of the upper and lower bounds based on the building location and other parameters related to labor cost, materials used, etc. Therefore, minimum, maximum and mean value of the replacement cost of each component was provided along with their standard deviations calculated using the Range Rule of Thumb [7]. Furthermore, the mean and standard deviation of each damage state replacement cost are provided in USD and also provided as a percentage of the total building replacement cost.
