      This report is the second report of the Expert Panel on Quantification of Seismic Margins. The objective of this report is to discuss progress to date in studying the issue of quantification of seismic margins in nuclear power plants. In particular, it deals with progress towards the establishment of review guidelines that would be useful in studying how much seismic margin by: U.S. nuclear power plants designed in the s and s used a deterministic statistical approach to addressing the risk of damage from shaking caused by a large earthquake (termed Deterministic Seismic Hazard Analysis, or DSHA).

      Appendix A to Part —Seismic and Geologic Siting Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants. I. Purpose. General Design Criterion 2 of Appendix A to part 50 of this chapter requires that nuclear power plant structures, systems, and components important to safety be designed to withstand the effects of natural phenomena such as earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, tsunami, and seiches. However, seismic walk-downs at some of these plants indicate that very little damage occurred to safety class systems and components due to the seismic motion. Therefore, it is necessary to gather the applicable data to quantify the margins in current seismic analysis techniques (linear analysis) at nuclear power plants. Need: High.

    seismic hazards at a nuclear installation site and, in particular, on how to determine: (a) the vibratory ground motion hazardsin order to establish the design basis ground motions and other relevant parameters for both new and existing nuclear installations, .   The new seismic model will be used by nuclear power plants in the central and eastern United States for these reevaluations, in addition to being used for licensing of new nuclear facilities. The project gathered and analyzed an expanded data set – including historical earthquake and geological data for the entire study region from
