For assessing possible failure of piping structures under excessive seismic loading, dynamic structural analysis methods employing advanced constitutive models need to be established. The multilayer kinematic hardening model for cyclic plasticity, which is applicable up to large strain, was proposed in the previous paper by the authors for carbon steel STS410 (JIS, Japanese Industrial Standard) to represent precisely nonlinear stress-strain relation as well as cyclic hardening, and was validated through its application to quasi-static cyclic bending tests of an elbow. In this paper, the applicability of the model to dynamic analysis of piping systems under earthquake loading is evaluated. An existing simulated earthquake excitation test of a piping system made of carbon steel STPT370 (JIS) is dealt with for validation of the finite element nonlinear dynamic analysis method using the presented model. To emphasize the advantage of this model, analyses using the conventional linear kinematic hardening model are also conducted. The results by the latter model are shown to be highly variable depending on the method of bilinear approximation of stress-strain curves. It is shown that the multilayer kinematic hardening model can predict well inelastic strains in piping systems under excessive earthquakes, which is important for the failure assessment.
