Abstract:

THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINESFOR SEISMIC DESIGN AND RESTRAINT OF HAZARDOUS PIPING SYSTEMSLOCATED IN INDUSTRIAL-FACILITY BUILDINGS. AT PRESENT, NO INTEGRATED CODE OR GUIDELINE EXISTS TO FACILITATE THIS TASK.THE DESIGN LEVEL FOR PIPING SYSTEMS WILL BE BASED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PIPING AND THE INTENSITY OF THE SEISMIC LOADING. A PIPING IMPORTANCE RATING WILL BE DEVELOPED, BASED ON OSHA AND EPA STANDARDS FOR HAZARDOUS FLUIDS. SEISMIC ZONATION INCLUDING LOCAL SOIL CHARACTERISTICS AND THE RESPONSE OF DIVERSE TYPES OF BUILDINGS WILL BE CONSIDERED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF SEISMIC DESIGN PARAMETERS. A COMPUTER CODE WHICH INCORPORATES STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY IN THE SEISMIC AREA WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DETERMINATION OF SEISMIC LOADS ON THE PIPING SYSTEMS. A DESIGN MANUAL WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR PLASTIC-PIPING SYSTEMS WHICH WILL SPECIFY DESIGN REQUIREMENTS, RESTRAINT-SPACING LIMITS AND GENERIC PIPING-RESTRAINT CONFIGURATIONS AS A FUNCTION OF PIPING IMPORTANCE (I.E., FLUID CONTENTS) AND THELEVEL OF SEISMIC LOAD.
