Guys, As per ASCE_7-05, clause 12.7.2 "Effective Seismic Weight", The Total operating weight of permanent equipment should be considered in the earthquake analysis. My question is, in case those permanent equipment have both static weight and continues dynamic loads, should i consider those dynamic loads as part of the "Total operating weight" or neglect the dynamic and consider only the static weight of the equipment?.
