Pipe work can be subjected to transient dynamic loadings when external forces such as safety relief valve blow out, sesimic events occur, water hammer, 2 phase flow etc act on the pipe.
This will manifest as uncontrolled vibrations which can seriously damage pipe work. This can be prevented by use of Rigid Struts & Shock Absorbers.
