Exhaustive studies on external events that may pose a threat to the structures of nuclear facilities and evaluations of the structural integrities are critical to safety. One of the components that greatly influence the behavior of the plant structure is the connection of structural members. In particular, the modeling of the connections has relied on empirical methods, and been conservatively designed and evaluated by considering them as pinned or rigid connections. Therefore, in this research, we have aimed to develop a connection modeling method that reproduces more realistic behavior by utilizing a three-dimensional model of the connection. As the first step of this research, we planned to determine the stiffness of the connections of steel structural members. The results confirmed that the connection can be regarded as a partially-restrained connection depending on the connection specifications of the structure, and the prospects for realistic stiffness evaluation of the connection were determined.

The method to estimate errors included in observational data and the method to compare numerical results with observational results are investigated toward the verification and validation (V&V) of a seismic simulation. For the method to estimate errors, it is found that errors are caused by the resolution, the linearity, the temperature coefficient for sensitivity, the temperature coefficient for zero shift, the transverse sensitivity, the seismometer property, the aliasing, and so on. Thus, it is needed to estimate errors individually for those factors and integrate them. For the method to compare numerical results with observational results, it is found that six methods have been mainly proposed in existing researches. Evaluating those methods using nine items, advantages and disadvantages for those methods are arranged. The method is not well established so that it is necessary to employ those methods by compensating disadvantages and/or to search for a solution to a novel method.

Since nuclear power plants have dimensions approximately 100m and their structures are an assembly made up of over 10 million components, it is not convenient to experimentally analyze its behavior under strong loads of earthquakes, due to the complexity and hugeness of plants. The proposed system performs numerical simulations to evaluate the behaviors of an assembly like a nuclear facility. The paper discusses how to carry out visual analysis for assembly such as nuclear power plants. In a result discussion, a numerical experiment was carried out with a numerical model of High Temperature engineering Test Reactor of Japan Atomic Energy Agency and its result was compared with observed data. A good corresponding among them was obtained as a structural analysis of an assembly by using visualization. As a conclusion, a visual analytics methodology for assembly is discussed.

Research and development of three-dimensional vibration simulation technologies for nuclear facilities have been promoted in the Center for Computational Science and e-Systems of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA). A seismic intensity of upper 5 was observed in the area of High-Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) at the Oarai Research and Development Center of the JAEA during the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. In this paper, we report a parametric study of seismic response analyses of this earthquake using three-dimensional finite element models of the HTTR building with various uncertainty parameters (e.g. soil-structure interaction effects, soil properties). By examining the variation of the response result against the uncertainty parameters, we obtained a knowledge, which is essential for constructing a valid three-dimensional finite element model.

The digital shaking table is introduced to carry out numerical experiments for the so called STRUCTURE of a petroleum plant. In numerical experiments, STRUCTURE was precisely modelled as it is designed and meshed into fine finite elements. The components of STRUCTURE were meshed one by one, and the code of a finite element analysis for structure of assembly gathered every meshed components to run time domain response analysis. Four waves are applied to the analysis to determine its behaviour. Four waves are namely as El Centro, Taft, Hachinohe, and Geiyo. The results of experiments are discussed by comparing accumulating data in the past. It is concluded to reconfirm the methodology of gathering meshed components and a finite element analysis for structure of assembly with the STRUCTURE.

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.

It is not convenient to experimentally analyze its behavior under strong loads of earthquakes, since the facility is extremely huge and complex. The proposed system performs numerical simulations to evaluate the behaviors of an assembly like a nuclear facility. This system projects the components of an assembly onto both/either a distributed and/or a parallel computing environment in order to conduct a simulation of the behavior of an assembly such as a nuclear facility. In a result discussion, a numerical experiment was carried out with a cantilever model and its result was compared with theoretical data. A good corresponding among them was obtained as a structural analysis of an assembly by using a parallel computer. As a conclusion, a suggested methodology has shown to calculate a behavior of an assembly with High Temperature engineering Test Reactor.

Nuclear plants are complicated and huge structures and consist of a large number of parts. To simulate the behavior of such a complicated huge structure, it becomes important the viewpoint as a general system including pre-post-processing. Therefore, the CCSE proposed an approach for assembly structure analysis and implemented a framework of a full-scale 3D vibration simulator for an entire nuclear plant. Until now, we performed numerical experiments using the data of a building and equipment of HTTR, Oarai R&D Center, JAEA, and demonstrated that earthquake response simulation of large-scale structure as an entire nuclear plant was possible so far. In this report, the framework of the full-scale 3D vibration simulator, the assembly structure analysis approach and visualization technology for an evaluation of the results are shown. And finally, an example of application of the simulator for probabilistic risk assessment, PRA, started from 2011, is shown.
