In this study, the vibrational behavior of piping systems supported by elasto-plastic dampers with gap supports was considered. First, an analytical model of L-type piping systems subjected to white noise was derived, including the nonlinear characteristics of the elasto-plastic dampers and gap supports. After the stress, energy absorption, and other parameters were calculated for many inputs, the dynamic reliability was calculated based on random theory. Optimization of the support locations was investigated. Finally, the effects of a gap support on the dynamic reliability were investigated.
