Equipment Support Resonance

Structural Design .
1.6.1
General. Structural engineering evaluations deal with the determination of
strength and deformation of members based on loads imposed by environmental
conditions. Building codes, DOE Orders, and Executive Orders are concerned
with the health and safety of the public and the economical construction of new
and existing facilities.
Metals-Stainless Steel . Useful information not covered in normal structural
1.6.2
codes is available in AISC N690, Design, Fabrication, and Erection of Steel
Safety-Related Structures for Nuclear Facilities.
1.6.3
Foundation Vibration . Guidance for the analysis of foundation vibrations,
design to avoid resonance, and vibration and shock isolation may be found in
Chapter 1 of Soil Dynamics, Deep Stabilization, and Special Geotechnical
Construction, NAVFAC DM-7.03.
1.6.4
Loads.
Ceiling and Roof Loads . Many buildings are subject to unanticipated additional
ceiling-roof equipment loads. Give consideration to providing for a future 10-
20 psf additional structural loading.
Partition Weights . Consider an allowance for the weights of partitions, where
partitions are likely to be rearranged, added, or relocated:
For partition weights of 150 plf or less, use an equivalent uniform dead
load of 20 psf.
For partition weights above 150 plf, consider actual linear loads.
Partitions that are likely to be rearranged or relocated can be calculated
as live loads for load factor design.
