Seismic analysis and certification of next generation advanced power plants including SSI and response spectra generation

Objective:

To perform various bounding seismic analysis of the power block subject to varying soil and ground motion in order to achieve a seismic solution that is good for placement in majority of sites around the world. This project was performed in support of the Design Certification of a next generation advanced power plant.

Solution:

ENOVA personnel participated in all facets of this project from generation of various soil models to complete soil-structure interaction analysis of the power block including generation of in-structure floor response spectra to be used for seismic design of piping and equipment.
