Chap co-authored by Y. B. Chen, S. Chang, and T. Chow, provides an overview of the nuclear energy application and development in Taiwan, which includes historical background of the development, role of the regulatory authority and current status of nuclear facilities. Standard Details. Preface This is the second edition of CSA N, Ground motion determination for seismic qualification of nuclear power plants. It supersedes the previous editi. For an existing plant, a limited review of the previous seismic analyses and testing with the redefined seismic spectra concludes that the previous design has sufficient seismic margin. Implications of the PSHA based spectra for seismic qualification of equipment for new plants is not expected to be as severe as once : Divakar Bhargava, Keshab K. Dwivedy. EPRI is at the center of a quickly evolving energy landscape. With significant challenges facing the electric industry and the world, we are always seeking top talent with hands-on experience to address issues as they relate to the generation, delivery, use, management and environmental responsibility of global electricity.

American Society of Civil Engineers Seismic Design Criteria for Structures, Systems, and Components in Nuclear Facilities This document uses both the International System of Units (SI) and customary units. Developed by Working Group for Seismic Design Criteria for Nuclear Facilities Dynamic Analysis of Nuclear Structures Subcommittee. This book focuses on the seismic design of Structures, Piping Systems and Components (SSC). It explains the basic mechanisms of earthquakes, generation of design basis ground motion, and fundamentals of structural dynamics; further, it delves into geotechnical aspects related to the earthquake design, analysis of multi degree-of-freedom systems, and seismic design of RC structures and steel. Seismic Response of Buried Pipes and Structural Components. At nuclear power plants there are numerous underground safety-related pipes and structural components which are utilized in the operation of the plant. These underground components provide water supply, electrical power, routing of pipes, and movement of personnel to ensure safe operation and safe shutdown of the by: 6. Recently, especially after the off the Pacific coast of Tohoku earthquake and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, the need for treating residual risks and cliff-edge effects in safety-critical facilities has been widely recognized as an extremely important issue. In this article, the sophistication of seismic designs in safety-critical facilities is discussed from the Author: Tatsuya Itoi, Yuki Iita, Naoto Sekimura.

Earthquake engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering that designs and analyzes structures, such as buildings and bridges, with earthquakes in mind. Its overall goal is to make such structures more resistant to earthquakes. An earthquake (or seismic) engineer aims to construct structures that will not be damaged in minor shaking and will avoid serious damage or collapse in a.
