Abstract: Proceedings of the International Seminar on Probabilistic and Extreme Load Design of Nuclear Plant Facilities, held in San Francisco, California, August 22-24, 1977. Sponsored by the ASCE Structural Division Committee on Nuclear Structures and Materials and Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology. International Seminar on Probabilistic and Extreme Load Design of Nuclear Plant Facilities contains dozens of papers covering a broad range of relevant issues in nuclear plant design. Topics include current structural design criteria, probabilistic versus deterministic basis for the definition of design earthquakes, and evaluation of safety and reliability of nuclear power plant facilities with emphasis on structural mechanics. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers working with load design of nuclear power plants.
