ASCE 25-06 Earthquake-Actuated Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices
ANSI/ASCE/SEI Standard 25-06 is an important Standard that provides current minimum functionality requirements for earthquake-actuated automatic gas shut-off devices and systems. This Standard is a thorough revision of ASCE/SEI Standard 25-97. The content and guidelines within this standard are only applicable to devices carrying gaseous fuels, such as natural gas and propane.
The seismic performance requirements established by this new edition are based upon dynamic testing of current devices and in-depth examination of data on ground motions, structural damage, fire initiation, and actuation of existing earthquake shutoff devices. 32 pp.
