See US Army Corps of Engineers, TI 809-05, November 1999, Seismic Evaluation
and Rehabilitation For Buildings. 

SMACNA (Sheet Metal & Air-Conditioning Contractors National Association) has
published guidelines for the design & seismic restraints of new mechanical
systems & plumbing piping systems (9/1982)which are referenced in TI 809-05.


Also see FEMA 172, 1992, NEHRP Handbook for Seismic Rehabilitation of
Existing Buildings.

I am looking for a standard / requirement for seismic bracing of mechanical,
plumbing, and electrical systems supported by hanger/trapeze strut system.
Does the building code specifically state these items must be braced, and if
so, at what interval?

Thank you,
