Abstract

The countries in the Community which are concerned by this study are those currently involved in the operation or development of fast reactors, namely: + France (F): Phenix - Superphenix + FRG Belgium Netherlands associated within DeBeNe: SNR 300 + United Kingdom (UK): PFR-CDFR + Italy (I): PEC The first aim of the study is to enumerate the common points and differences in the national rules and regulations for the seismic analysis of fast breeder reactors (FBR). Such divergences may be encountered at different design stages, namely: in the definition of the seismic input data, in the choice of design limits and in the degree of conservatism applied to the calculation methods employed. For every one of these three stages, it is necessary to identify the points likely to influence the results of the analysis and consequently the over all safety margin with regard to the event concerned.
