    Seismic Margin Assessment (SMA) is one of the methods for seismic safety assessment of nuclear power plants. The United States in the s requires all running nuclear power plants to carry out an Individual Plant Examination of External Events (IPEEE), in the completion of the IPEEE of units, 65 units using the seismic margin assessment method. Utilities and other industry organizations have renewed focus on seismic activity protection for nuclear generation plants and facilities. One of the catalysts for this interest was the March , magnitude Tohoku earthquake in Japan resulting in a catastrophic tsunami and causing a significant incident at the Fukushima nuclear generation station. How does a plant ensure that the maximum.

      SGH engineers perform Seismic Probabilistic Risk Assessments (SPRAs) for operating nuclear power plants the U.S., Asia and in Europe. The SPRA has become the standard method to quantify the seismic risk of a facility and is increasingly used within the nuclear power industry and the U.S. Department of Energy. “Evaluation of Seismic Safety for Existing Nuclear Installations” (IAEA, a). The supporting document of this Guide is the Safety Report Series No 28 on “Seismic Evaluation of Existing Nuclear Power Plants” (IAEA, ) that summarises the before experience in the seismic evaluation and upgrading of the operating plants.

    @article{osti_, title = {Generic seismic ruggedness of power plant equipment}, author = {Merz, K L}, abstractNote = {This report updates the results of a program with the overall objective of demonstrating the generic seismic adequacy of as much nuclear power plant equipment as possible by means of collecting and evaluating existing seismic qualification test data.   In Japan, seismic design of nuclear power reactor facilities is examined according to the “Regulatory Guide for Examining Seismic Design of Nuclear Power Reactor Facilities” [1]. Therefore, the seismic design of a nuclear power plant (NPP) is conducted based on this guide.

This Safety Guide provides guidelines and recommends procedures for the evaluation of seismic hazards for nuclear power plants. Specifically, it provides recommendations on how to determine the ground motion hazards for a plant at a particular site and the potential for surface faulting, which could affect the feasibility of construction and safe operation of a plant at that sitePublisher's description.

This Safety Guide provides recommendations regarding the criteria and methodologies to be used for seismic safety evaluation of existing nuclear installations, including installations whose purpose and associated radiological risks have changed, installations where longer term operation is under consideration and installations where comprehensive seismic safety reassessments have become.

SUMMARY OF EVALUATION OF UPDATED SEISMIC HAZARDS Upon renewal of the Point Lepreau Generating Station's (PLGS) Power Reactor Operating Licence in by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), the completion of an updated site-specific seismic hazard assessment was made a condition of the Station's licence renewal.

The draft text for review, entitled Seismic Hazards in Site Evaluation forNuclear Installations, was prepared as a draft Safety Guide publication to be issued in the IAEA Safety Standards Series and has already been reviewed through consultants’ meetings, as well as by the Nuclear Safety Standards Committee (NUSSC) and the Waste Safety Standards Committee.

(R) advised rulemaking requiring nuclear power plant licensees confirm seismic and flooding hazards every 10 years. • In SECY, the staff proposed to meet the intent of R by enhancing existing processes to ensure that staff proactively and routinely aggregates and assesses new natural hazard information.

The present publication provides guidelines and recommends procedures for the evaluation of seismic hazards for nuclear power plants. It supersedes Safety Series No. SG-S1 (Rev. 1), Earthquakes and Associated Topics in Relation to Nuclear Power Plant Siting, IAEA, Vienna ().

Seismic Reevaluations (ARCHIVED) Note: This is an archived web page. For the most up-to-date information, see the new Post-Fukushima Safety Enhancements page. Operating reactor sites are using present-day information to reevaluate the earthquake effects—or hazards—that could impact their site.

Sections 3 to 9 provide detailed guidance for nuclear power plants. Section 10 discusses the evaluation of seismic hazards for nuclear installations other than nuclear power plants using a graded approach.

Section 11 addresses project management, including quality assurance and peer review requirements. A SITE FOR A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT The selection and the evaluation of the site for a nuclear power plant are crucial parts of establishing a nuclear power programme and can be significantly affected by: • costs, • public acceptance, and • safety considerations.
