The code based horizontal seismic force requirements for pipe and duct are either calculated by
the seismic restraint manufacturer as a part of the selection and certification process, or available
through a convenient and easy method provided by the manufacturer. Kinetics Noise Control
provides online tools that will calculate the horizontal seismic force and make recommendations
for the proper seismic restraints for the pipe or duct in question. These tools will be discussed in
the next section.
This section is an informational section. It will discuss the code based horizontal seismic force
demand equations and the variables that go into them. This discussion will provide a deeper
understanding for the designer responsible for selecting the seismic restraints for pipe or duct and
the nature of the seismic forces and the factors that affect them.
