ISBN: OCLC. of volcanoes and associated topics for nuclear power plant siting. The Code on the Safety of Nuclear Power Plants: Siting (C-S (Rev. 1)) indicates that historical data concerning phenomena that have potential to produce adverse effects on the safety of the nuclear power plant, such as volcanism, shall be collected and evaluated. Siting is the term used to describe the process to select where a nuclear installation is built and whether the decided location is suitable for it. Siting is one of the important decisions in the early stage of a planned nuclear energy project.

Siting of~uclearPower Plants Siting ofNuclear Power Plants -Course Outline This course will provide some insights into the issues involved in siting a nuclear power plant, from the perspective ofboth the utility and regulator, under the following headings: 1. General factors associated with the siting oflarge electrical generating plants; 2.   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. In the siting of nuclear power plants the adequacy of the seismological data base is often questioned. As discussed in the Agency's Safety Series No. SG-S1 "Earthquakes and Associated Topics in Relation to Nuclear Power Plant Siting", the use of microearthquake data may be one excellent and powerful tool in providing further insight into the.

This report aims to provide guidelines for the assessment of the safety of nuclear facilities other than nuclear power plants in relation to external events through the application of simplified methods and procedures for their siting and design. The approach adopted is both simplified and conservative compared with that used for power reactors.
