Guidelines for Use of Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Curves at Department of Energy Sites for Department of Energy Facilities

Change Notice 1(January 1996) | Canceled Effective October 2001, due to FY 2001 Sunset Review

The issue of the seismic hazard to be used in safety or risk assessments has recently been raised at a number of Department of Energy (DOE) facilities. One of the technical issues associated with this topic is the existence and use of two different methodologies for the development of seismic hazard curves by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).
