Technology Description

Currently, DOE and the nuclear industry perform seismic analysis using equivalent-linear numerical analysis tools. For large levels of shaking, where soil strains are high, these tools are likely inaccurate for seismic and flooding probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) calculations. This proposed technology, with advanced seismic methods and tools, will minimize uncertainty and reduce quantified safety margins and costs required to mitigate seismic hazards.
