ANSI/ANS-2.2-2016, Earthquake Instrumentation Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants
Current Standard, Supersedes ANSI/ANS-2.2-2002
Item ID: 240315
This standard specifies the required earthquake instrumentation at the site and on Seismic Category I structures of light-water-cooled, land-based nuclear power plants. It may be used for guidance at other types of nuclear facilities. This standard does not address the following:
- instrumentation to shut down a nuclear power plant automatically at a predetermined parameter of the ground motion or the in-structure response;
- procedures for evaluating records obtained from seismic instrumentation and instructions for the treatment of data. These procedures and instructions are specified in ANSI/ANS-2.23-2016;
- instrumentation for nuclear power plant designs incorporating base isolation techniques.
