Seismic Design Criteria for Structures, Systems, and Components in Nuclear Facilities provides stringent design criteria for nuclear facilities. Because of the potential risk associated with nuclear hazards, nuclear facilities should have a lower probability than conventional facilities of sustaining structural damage caused by earthquake. The goal of this Standard is to ensure that nuclear facilities can withstand the effects of earthquake ground-shaking with desired performance. Topics include:

evaluation of seismic demand; evaluation of structural capacity; load combinations and acceptance criteria for structures; ductile detailing requirements; equipment and distribution systems; and seismic quality provisions.

This Standard will be of use to designers or analysts involved in the design of new nuclear structures, systems, or components.
