A number of industry and U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) requirements exist for the quantification and qualification of piping-system vibrations. An ASME Operating and Maintenance (OM) Standard was written to provide methods for obtaining piping vibration measurements and to define acceptance criteria for the evaluation and qualification of the vibrations. Described herein is an overview of this standard, ASME OM-3, “Vibration Testing of Piping Systems,” along with discussions of the acceptance criteria (Reference 1).
