Fundamental principles from structural dynamics, theory of random processes and perturbation techniques are used to develop a new method for seismic analysis of multiply supported secondary subsystems, such as piping attached to primary structures. The method provides a decoupled analysis of the secondary subsystem wherein the response is given in terms of response spectra associated with the attachment points (‘floors’). In order to account for correlations between modal responses and between… CONTINUE READING
