A load combination scheme for seismic response calculation of multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) piping systems with friction characteristics to multiple support excitations is presented. This scheme has an advantage, such that the “response reduction factor” due to friction is taken into account by use of a stationary random vibration theory approach. Using a simple and analytical 5DOF piping system with friction characteristics to two support excitations, combination law is supplied to various friction characteristics and the maximum responses of piping is calculated. From these calculation results, it is clear that the maximum acceleration responses of piping systems calculated by the proposed scheme are reasonable compared with those by the numerical simulations.
