Abstract: In this paper, we present an analytical study for incorporating the effect of uncertainties in modal properties of uncoupled primary and secondary systems in the seismic analysis of non-classically damped coupled systems such as building piping by response spectrum method. Monte Carlo simulation is used to illustrate that the secondary system design response when defined at a non-exceedence probability of 0.84 over the individual responses obtained from multiple response spectrum analyses by considering uncer…
