We describe the hierarchical-review approach to tsunami-hazard assessment at nuclear power plant sites in Chapter 2. The hierarchical-review approach consists of a series of stepwise, progressively more-refined analyses to evaluate the hazard resulting from a phenomena at a nuclear power plant site.

focus on its relevance for hazard assessment at nuclear power plant sites. Chapter 1 includes an overview of tsunamis and mechanisms that gener-ate tsunamis. Three tsunamigenic mechanisms—earthquakes, landslides, and volcanoes—are considered relevant for hazard assessment at nuclear power plant sites.

We summarize historical tsunami occurrences. Chapter 4 describes data required for a detailed tsunami-hazard assessment and sources of these data. We recommend using existing resources and previously completed tsunami-hazard assessments, if available and appropriate.

Detailed tsunamihazard assessment at a nuclear power plant site should be based on the probable maximum tsunami. Get this from a library. Tsunami hazard assessment at nuclear power plant sites in the United States of America: draft report for comment. [R Prasad; U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Some candidate Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) sites may be located on coasts subject to tsunamis hazard. The devastation to coastal infrastructure caused by the Indian Ocean tsunami of 24 December has changed the perception of a tsunami as a low-risk hazard.

The accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was the first major accident initiated by an external event — an earthquake and a resulting tsunami.

It has justifiably caused a worldwide re-examination of the vulnerability of nuclear power plants to. The aim of the project was to define the seismic hazard for the proposed new nuclear power station on Angelsey, North Wales.
