The seismic design criteria applied to sitting commercial nuclear
power plants operating in the U.S. received increased attention
following the March 11th, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that
devastated Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station. Since
the events, some in Congress have begun to question whether U.S.
plants are vulnerable to a similar threat, particularly in light of
the Nuclear Regulatory Commissions's (NRC)ongoing reassessment of
seismic risks at certain plant sites. This book presents some of
the general design concepts of operating nuclear power plants in
order to discuss design considerations for seismic events.
