Séismes et autres phénomènes connexes à prendre en considération pour le choix des sites de centrales nucléaires

50-SG-S1 (REV. 1)
French STI/PUB/871 92-0-200194-4


This guide puts the main emphasis on determining ground motion as an input to the design of a nuclear power plant and on determining any potential for surface faulting at a selected site. The type of information required and the investigations to be performed are described in the context of their dependence on the geological, seismological and geotectonical aspects of the region.
Contents: Definitions; Note on the interpretation of the text; 1. Introduction; 2. General requirements; 3. Required information and investigations (Database); 4. Construction of a regional seismotectonic model; 5. Evaluation of design basis ground motions; 6. Potential for surface faulting at the site; 7. Seismically generated water waves; 8. Potential for permanent ground displacements associated with earthquakes and geological phenomena; Appendix: Seismic intensity scales.
