October 2020 Chapter Meeting

When: Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Where: Online (ZOOM link will be sent to the registration list at a later date)

Title: Basics of Seismic Restraint and Vibration Isolation Design


Abstract: This presentation will mainly review a basic approach to addressing code requirements to seismic restraint design for non-structural components such as pumps, chillers, air handlers, and other mechanical items.  This presentation will also include a review of the inter-relationship between seismic restraint design and vibration isolation and how both are resolved within a delegated seismic restraint and vibration isolation design submittal.  Finally, it will address quality assurance measures to ensure the two have been incorporated into projects by the installing contractor.
