In this paper both dynamic shaking and cyclic static component test data are used to develop a modified ASME Code moment capacity equation for seismic loading on piping systems. The aim of this modified equation is to conservatively achieve a seismic capacity margin corresponding to a 1% probability of failure of less than about two.
