Standard for the Seismic Design and Retrofit of Above-Ground Piping Systems
|Publication Date:||6 July 2010|
This Standard applies to above-ground, metallic piping systems in the scope of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping (B31.1, B31.3, B31.4, B31.5, B31.8, B31.9, B31.11). The requirements described in this Standard are valid when the piping system complies with the materials, design, fabrication, examination, testing, and inspection requirements of the applicable ASME B31 Code section.
This Standard establishes a method for the seismic design of above-ground piping systems in the scope of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping.
