DC White offer extensive experience of seismic design – we understand the implications of design features with respect to seismic activity: we are very familiar with the known pitfalls and we can therefore bring our depth of knowledge to bear on a standard design.

Vibration Analysis And Rotating Systems

For example, DC White were asked to substantiate a Fire control system cabinet to be fitted in a Nuclear Power Plant in Eastern Europe. The 2.3m cabinet was to be fitted at an elevation of 115m within the building, which gave a 20Hz frequency Response Spectrum.

It was a simple instrumentation cabinet – but we looked at its design, asked for certain features such as spot welds to be removed, the floor attachment to be modified and the internals to be strengthened. We were then able to provide a full seismic substantiation document, knowing that this equipment would withstand the design earthquake and probably one far worse.
