This paper continues our recent discussion on piping vibration and vibration-related damage. Two key issues are addressed in both analytical and experimental aspects: (1) vibration properties and their identification; (2) damage mechanisms caused by vibration and their prevention. Practical approaches for identifying vibration properties and practical measures for preventing vibration damages are overviewed. An empirical approach, which estimates a “vibration susceptibility” parameter prior to installation of a piping system, and for planning post-installation vibration recording activities, is described and studied numerically and experimentally. This approach is based on “theoretic predictions” of “critical” sections of a piping system, namely the sections most sensitive to vibration. It utilizes thereafter an option in a commercial piping program, which serves as a screening tool for determining “potentially-large” alternating stresses. Combined with knowledge of typical vibration sources, this is a cost effective way for preventing vibration damages and for forming a base for controlling actual vibrations in operation of plant, especially for closed premises. Examples are given to exemplify vibration risk.
