Seismic response of a nuclear power generation complex including structure-to-structure interaction effects

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Seismic responses of the Zion nuclear power generation complex accounting for structure-to-structure interaction effects as predicted by CLASSI and FLUSH Codes are presented in this paper. Two aspects of the multi-structure analyses were considered: the effect of structure-to-structure interaction on structure response and the variability in structure response as predicted by different codes, including structure-to-structure interaction. The effect of structure- to-structure interaction on the response of the Zion reactor building and AFT complex (the auxiliary/fuel-handling/turbine building complex) was assessed by comparing the results of CLASSI analyses with and without interaction between structures. The results show that the reactor building has ... continued below

Description

Seismic responses of the Zion nuclear power generation complex accounting for structure-to-structure interaction effects as predicted by CLASSI and FLUSH Codes are presented in this paper. Two aspects of the multi-structure analyses were considered: the effect of structure-to-structure interaction on structure response and the variability in structure response as predicted by different codes, including structure-to-structure interaction. The effect of structure- to-structure interaction on the response of the Zion reactor building and AFT complex (the auxiliary/fuel-handling/turbine building complex) was assessed by comparing the results of CLASSI analyses with and without interaction between structures. The results show that the reactor building has a very small effect on the AFT complex, but the effect of structure-to-structure interaction on the reactor building from the AFT complex is substantial. A comparison of the reactor building`s response as predicted by CLASSI and FLUSH, structures including structure-to-structure interaction, shows significant differences. Modeling three-dimensional configuration of a complicated power plant structure such as the Zion`s with equivalent two-dimensional models for structure-to-structure interaction analysis requires careful consideration.
