Abstract

The paper reviews the current state-of-the-art on the seismic response analysis of complex RCC structure like forebay which is usually connected with CW Pump House frame at its rear end for fulfilling circulating water requirement in power plant - nuclear or thermal. The need to include in such analysis and design effects of 3-Dimensional mathematical model and soil-structure interaction for studying overall behaviour of the structure are highlighted. The paper also discusses the usefulness, if any, of such rigorous analysis and identifies some problem areas in finalising realistic design data and adopting suitable models to represent the structural system.

Seismic Response Analysis of Forebay Structure for CW Pump House of a Nuclear Power Project

The paper reviews the current state-of-the-art on the seismic response analysis of complex RCC structure like forebay which is usually connected with CW Pump House frame at its rear end for fulfilling circulating water requirement in power plant - nuclear or thermal. The need to include in such analysis and design effects of 3-Dimensional mathematical model and soil-structure interaction for studying overall behaviour of the structure are highlighted. The paper also discusses the usefulness, if any, of such rigorous analysis and identifies some problem areas in finalising realistic design data and adopting suitable models to represent the structural system.
