W28 Seismic Safety Approaches for Advanced Non-Light Water Reactors

The purpose of the session is to have staff, industry, and practitioners share insights and perspectives on seismic safety topics for advanced non-light water reactors (ANLWRs) and engage on discussion of new approaches such as risk-informed and performance-based methods consistent with the License Modernization Project and advanced technologies such as seismic isolation to enhance safety while reducing burdens and costs for the seismic design and construction of ANLWRs.
