Abstract

Model tests using shaking table and impulse hummer were performed to confirm analysis tools currently used in Japan for the seismic design of a reactor building embedded in soft ground. The models are made of a silicone rubber ground and an aluminum building. Embedment depths of the foundation are varied. Comparison between test results and analytical results is discussed in terms of impedance functions, foundation input motions and structure responses.

Laboratory Tests on Embedded Reactor Building on Soft Ground

Model tests using shaking table and impulse hummer were performed to confirm analysis tools currently used in Japan for the seismic design of a reactor building embedded in soft ground. The models are made of a silicone rubber ground and an aluminum building. Embedment depths of the foundation are varied. Comparison between test results and analytical results is discussed in terms of impedance functions, foundation input motions and structure responses.
