Seismic Response Analysis of Containment with Hemisphere Dome for Advanced Nuclear Power Station


Article Preview

Nuclear Power Station is the last bulwark of the nuclear reactors, and the seriousness of the consequences due to the damage and the enormous impact of human psychology, the seismic response analysis of nuclear power plants is essential. MIDAS/Gen finite element model of the structure of the space, for example, a nuclear power plant, the power of the research containment structure under horizontal seismic response characteristics and undermine the law, the natural frequency of the structure, shapes characteristics, structure the displacement distribution parameters, provides a basis for the design of the structure and to provide a reference for similar studies.
