Because of the snubbers malfunctions and time consuming and costly inspections required for them, the use of “seismic stops” has been taken into account to reduce the piping vibrations . These stops usually have 3-4 centimeter of gaps and are designed in a way to be as effective as snubbers in controlling seismic motions.
If anyone knows any reference for designing the seismic stops, please let me know.
