Bracing for Piping Systems Seismic-Wind-Dynamic Design, Selection, Application

Piping systems shall be protected to reduce the risk of piping overstress where subject to seismic, wind and other dynamic forces.
This Standard Practice establishes the material, design, fabrication and inspection criteria to be used in the manufacture of standard types of bracing assemblies.
This Standard Practice presents recommended guidelines for incorporating stability in piping systems for protection against seismic, wind, and other dynamic forces.
This Standard Practice is intended for use on piping systems where formal engineered bracing design may not have been performed.
This Standard Practice applies to rigidly connected metallic pipe only (welded, flanged, mechanical jointed, etc). For other types of pipe and pipe connections, contact the pipe manufacturer for information.
