Guidelines for Seismic Evaluation and Design of Petrochemical Facilities

Guidelines for Seismic Evaluation and Design of Petrochemical Facilities
American Society of Civil Engineers. Task Committee on Seismic Evaluation and Design

ASCE Publications | 2011 | ISBN: 0784411409 9780784411407 | 375 pages | PDF | 6 MB
In the area of new design, this book emphasizes interpretations of the intent of building codes as applied to petrochemical facilities, and gives practical guidance on design details and considerations that are not included in building codes. These guidelines offer practical recommendations on several aspects affecting the design and safety of new and existing petrochemical facilities both during and following an earthquake.

For existing facilities, the authors present evaluation methodologies that rely heavily on experience from past earthquakes, coupled with focused analyses.
This is an updated edition in a collection of state-of-the-practice reports produced by the ASCE Petrochemical Committee. It will be valuable to structural design engineers, operating company personnel responsible for establishing seismic design and construction standards, and local building authorities.
