For areas prone to seismic activity, system designers must consider the International Building Code standards for key buildings applicable to those areas. A system designer must consider the behavior of non-structural elements during seismic activity/earthquakes. New IBC codes now consider critical equipment to be part of a structure and require certification of an equipment’s ability to perform after experiencing seismic shocks.
