Abstract

The influence of different soil properties on the response behaviour of buildings and components was investigated using the finite element method. The first example is concerned with a high temperature reactor. Floor response spectra and rocking of the prestressed reactor pressure vessel are calculated. In another example the influence of soil-structure interaction on the response of embedded buildings is shown.

Influence of Soil-Structure Interaction on the Response of Nuclear Power Stations under Earthquake Excitation

St. Louis, Missouri

The influence of different soil properties on the response behaviour of buildings and components was investigated using the finite element method. The first example is concerned with a high temperature reactor. Floor response spectra and rocking of the prestressed reactor pressure vessel are calculated. In another example the influence of soil-structure interaction on the response of embedded buildings is shown.
