Structures for Nuclear Facilities

Structures for Nuclear Facilities


793 Pages


This book provides a general introduction to the topic of buildings for
resistance to the effects of abnormal loadings. The structural design
requirements for nuclear facilities are very unique. In no other structural system
are extreme loads such as tornadoes, missile and loud interaction, earthquake
effects typical in excess of any recorded historical data at a site, and postulated
system accident at very low probability range explicitly, considered in design.
It covers the whole spectrum of extreme load which has to be
considered in the structural design of nuclear facilities and reactor buildings,
the safety criteria, the structural design, the analysis of containment. Test case
studies are given in a comprehensive treatment.
Each major section contains a full explanation which allows the book to be used
by students and practicing engineers, particularly those facing formidable task
of having to design complicated building structures with unusual boundary
