Abstract

 According to the IAEA and USNRC (United State Nuclear Regulatory Commision) regulations, calculating a strong ground motion during an earthquake is of great importance for the design of nuclear facilities, especially nuclear power plants. In the absence of precise seismic studies and in case of severe earthquakes, many radioactive contaminants are released into the environment, with irreparable physical and financial losses, hazarding the nuclear facilities, people and the environment. In this research, in order to develop the earthquake attenuation relationships for Boushehr, an important region, simulation of the ground motion was used along with the Stochastic Finite Fault Method. The results obtained from the simulation have been compared with the results obtained from the valid world relations for the Zagros region. Evidently, they show good consistency. The proposed model is a theory-empirical relationship of the Bushehr susceptible region, which can be used to assess the safety of the existing nuclear power plant in Boushehr and to design new nuclear power plants in the future.
