Attached
is
an
assessment performed by
the
structural engineers
of
our Japanese response team regarding the ability
of
the
reactor
building structure
to
support additional loads
of
water
due to
flooding
of
primary
containment
and
the reactorvessel. Please consider whether this assessment should change the existing RST caution for seismic considerations.This
is
not
an
immediate issue,
but
we should reflect
any
additional comments
in
the next RST assessment.Respectfully,

Question:
Can the
reactor building
structure support additional loads
of
water
due to
flooding
of
primary
containment
and
reactor
vessel..
Response:
Item
1:
Drywell FloodingThe
drywell
containment
is
1-1/2
inch
thick
steel
plate.
The
bottom
of
the drywell steel
containment
is
resting directly
on concrete. The
upper part
of
the drywell
is
enclosed by
thick(5-7 feet
thick)
concrete
shield
walls. There
is
approximately
2
inch
gap
between
the
drywelland shield walls.
The
foundation
more
that
30 feet
thick.
There
is
no
information
about the
condition
of
concrete walls
or floor
after
theearthquake/tsunami
event.
However,
it
is
unlikely that
these walls
or
foundation
are severely
damaged or
cracked. A
quick review
of
the
videos or photographs
is
inconclusive.Addition
of
water
to flood the drywell
containment will
impose
gravity
loads.
These
loads will
be directly transferred to
the concrete
foundation.
The concrete
foundation
is
thick and
can
support these
loads.
In
the
unlikely
event
of
a
new earthquake while the drywell
is
flooded,
additional
horizontalloads
will be
imposed
on the drywell steel.
The existing
structure
has not been analyzed
for theseloads.
However, in
the
worst
case scenario, drywell
vessel
may
deflect
2
inches and come
into
with
the
thick
concrete
shield walls.
The
shield
walls have
significant capacity to resisthorizontal
loads to
be imposed
by
the
drywell
during this unlikely
event.
Furthermore,
the
horizontal ground motion detected
during the
recent
earthquake were
about the
same
or
less
than
design basis. Any subsequent
earthquake
in
future during the
short
time the
drywell
is
flooded
is
not likely
to be
of
the same magnitude
as
the March
11,
2011
earthquake.The
reactor vessel
is
supported
on
a
pedestal inside
the drywell.
This pedestal
is
designed
for
design basis earthquake
loads. Once the drywell
and
reactor vessel
are
flooded,
the
horizontal
forces
transferred
to
the
pedestal
are
not likely
to increase
because
of
the
damping
effect
of
thewater inside
the drywell.In
summary, flooding
of
drywell and reactor vessel
is
not likely
to
compromise
their
structural
integrity.
Item
2
-
Suppression Pool (Torus)
The suppression pool (torus)
has
a
diameter
of
29.5
foot
diameter
and
major diameter
of
109.9
foot
diameter. Bottom
half
of
the
torus
is
full
of
water
during normal plant operations.
If
the
torus
is
flooded
to the top, it
will
increase
gravity
loads on the
5/8
to
3/4
thick torus
steel and
associated supports. This
will
not
affect the structural integrity
of
the torus or associated
steel
supports.
