In the seismic response analysis of piping systems, finite element analysis is performed with analysis method guidelines – established based on benchmark analysis. However, since it takes a great deal of effort to carry out finite element analysis, a simplified method to analyze the seismic response of complex piping systems is required. In this research, we propose a method to reduce an equivalent spring-mass system model with low degrees of freedom, which can take into account the main mode of the complicated piping system. Simplified seismic evaluation is carried out using this spring mass system model with low degrees of freedom, and the accuracy of response evaluation is confirmed by comparison with finite element analysis.
