This paper shows a benchmark result regarding elastic-plastic seismic response analysis and fatigue evaluation for of piping model excitation test. National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED) has a lot of experimental results of shaking table test of piping. To propose advance seismic evaluation method for piping under severe seismic event, a task in JSME Code committee performs benchmark activity for elastic plastic seismic response analysis and evaluation for piping by using NIED’s experimental results [1].

Authors are taking part in the task and have been performed a benchmark of seismic response analysis and seismic evaluation by comparing with the experimental results. For fatigue evaluation, the strain ranges and the cycles of each range obtained from strain time history were evaluated. The response acceleration and displacement was evaluated for plastic collapse.
