The purpose of this guide is to

• Provide comprehensive, yet easy to follow guidance for the seismic design of piping systems in essential facilities such as power plants, chemical process facilities, oil and gas pipelines and terminals, and post-earthquake critical institutions such as hospitals.

• Compile and describe in a single document the steps and techniques necessary for the seismic qualification of new or existing above ground piping systems, based on current analytical and dynamic testing technology, as well as experience from the behavior of piping systems in actual earthquakes.

• Propose a seismic qualification standard, to be submitted to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME, for consideration as the basis for a B31 standard.
