A structural concept of a vertical component isolation system for fast reactors, assuming a building adopting a horizontal base isolation system, has been studied. In this concept, a reactor vessel and major primary components are suspended from a large common deck supported by vertical isolation devices consisting of large coned disk springs. We designed the isolation device, which could be achieved vertical isolation frequency of 1 Hz and damping ratio of 20 %. Full scale coned disk spring and damper performance tests were carried out to verify the validity of design equations. And a series of shaking table test using a 1/8 scale model was performed. The test results fit well the simulation analysis results, so the validity of the design methods was able to be verified. The prospect that the vertical component isolation system applied to the FBR plant could technically realize was obtained.
