Almost all industrial products are assembled from multiple parts. A nuclear facility is a large structure consisting of more than 10 million components. This paper discusses a method to analyze an assembly by gathering data on its component parts. Gathered data on component may identify ill conditioned meshes for connecting surfaces between components. These ill meshes are typified by nodal point disagreement in finite element discretization. A technique to resolve inconsistencies in data among the components is developed. By using this technique, structural analysis for an assembly can be carried out, and results can be obtained by the use of supercomputers, such as the K computer. Numerical results are discussed for components of the High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor.
