Development of site-specific synthetic accelerations for safety assessment of DOE facilities at Oak Ridge, Tennessee

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Seismic analysis of US Department of Energy (DOE) facilities at Oak Ridge, TN, requires seismic accelerograms that have response spectra that are compatible with the site-specific design response spectra. The development of these accelerograms is accomplished by the application of the Fourier transform to compute the response spectrum of a beginning accelerogram and map it into the frequency domain. The Fourier spectrum is modified according to the difference between the computed spectra and the target spectra. The response spectrum is recomputed and compared again to the target. The modification is repeated until acceptable agreement is achieved. The modified Fourier spectrum ... continued below

The Fourier spectrum is modified according to the difference between the computed spectra and the target spectra. The response spectrum is recomputed and compared again to the target. The modification is repeated until acceptable agreement is achieved. The modified Fourier spectrum is transformed to the time domain and filtered yielding the desired seismic time history. 7 refs., 5 figs.
