Length: 4 days
Several National Standards and regulations (such as the National Hazard Reduction Program -NEHRP by FEMA, the ASME and UBC Codes) have recently introduced explicit requirements for the seismic design or retrofit of critical plant and facility systems and equipment.
This course provides plant owners in earthquake prone areas, who are concerned about reducing public risk and financial loss caused by earthquakes, with ways to implement cost-effective preventive upgrades to essential equipment. It covers the explicit requirements of the latest national standards and regulations, including FEMA’s National Hazard Reduction Program (NEHRP), as well as ASME and UBC Codes, for the seismic design or retrofit of critical plant and facility systems and equipment. Each participant will receive a copy of the B31E - 2008 Standard for the Seismic Design and Retrofit of Above-Ground Piping Systems and ASCE 7-10 - Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures Standard.
You Will Learn To
- Identify the requirements for the seismic design or retrofit of critical plant and facility systems and equipment to comply with the latest national codes
- Explain how to evaluate plant piping and equipment to ensure those requirements are met, and practical methods to resolve items which do not meet requirements
- Demonstrate a theoretical and practical understanding of seismic design and analysis and the applicable codes, standards and practices
- Explain how to apply the engineering methods necessary to assess the seismic ruggedness of structure
