DOE-SPEC-3019-96
e. Investigate any deformations resulting from the combined
influence of normal-operating loads and seismic loads, to verify
they will not impair structural integrity.
Demonstration of integrity. Demonstrate the equipment's ability to
3.2.7.2
withstand and maintain its structural integrity when subjected to the
forces resulting from the seismic conditions specified. This shall be
accomplished in one or a combination of the following methods:
a. Predict the equipment's performance and response to a seismic
force by mathematical static analysis;
b. Test the equipment under simulated seismic conditions (static or
dynamic testing); and/or
c. Utilize previous seismic certification of the equipment [or
equivalent equpment if equivalence can be demonstrated,] and
demonstrate applicability under the seismic conditions specified.
ATTENTION:
The following subparagraph reflects seismic requirements under the Uniform Building Code (ICBO UBC.) Revise
as required under other building code jurisdictions.
********************
3.2.7.3
its supports shall be obtained by multiplying the weight of the
components by the horizontal seismic acceleration coefficient (H) in
accordance with the following three options. The force shall be
assumed to act in any lateral direction, combined with 0.15 W uplift
or downward acceleration due to earthquake in accordance with
ICBO UBC. (Note: Z = seismic zone factor, I = site coefficient, and
Cp = horizontal force factor)
ATTENTION:
In the following options, adjust the Z, I, and Cp factors as required for the specific project.
********************
Option one. If the equipment is supported on walls, on the roof,
or from the roof of the building, use:
H = 0.75 (Based on Z = 0.5, I = 1.0, and Cp = 2 x 0.75)
