Earthquakes are more likely to occur in some parts of the world than others. When buildings are constructed in areas where seismic activity is likely to occur the building codes and standards require seismic bracing of mechanical equipment. The selection and specification of products for installation of mechanical equipment in seismic zones requires some basic understanding of how the installation of mechanical equipment needs to be implemented.

In this course you will learn the basics of how to attach mechanical equipment to a structure to minimize earthquake damage. There are many attachment examples shown in the course including anchoring and the use of special devices called seismic restraint devices. This course does not supersede code requirements; however, it provides a good fundamental basis for understanding the practical requirements for installing mechanical equipment requiring seismic bracing. Users of the information in this course assume all liability arising from such use.
