Title: Seismic effects on modularized spent fuel storage facilities. [Earthquake resistance]

Abstract

Large pools are being considered to provide additional storage capacity for spent fuel from nuclear power plants. Because of the large size, modularization of the pool into cells would enhance operational safety and convenience in terms of isolating trouble spots and performing localized clean-up. However, the effects of modularization on earthquake resistance were not clear. An investigation of these effects was made and the results are presented. The findings indicate that modularization may or may not be advantageous in terms of structural loads, depending on the pool configuration and installation. 5 fig.
