Summary

International Atomic Energy Agency has recently initiated a Coordinated Research Program on safety significance of near-field earthquakes. The purpose of this program is to focus on the assessment of vulnerability of nuclear facility structures by using and adapting the best available engineering practices appropriate to evaluate the effects of Near-Field Earthquakes (NFE). The program has two principal components:

  1. Evaluation of safety significance of experimental results by carrying out a benchmark on Nier-Field Earthquakes using the CAMUS I structural wall tests, provided by France, as experimental background data.
  2. Development of a common approach to necessary evolution of the current engineering practice by concurring on the main features of an appropriate approach to realistically account for the effects of near-field earthquakes and their safety significance. The basis for this common approach is the conclusions of the NUREG/CR-6719 document.
