This proceedings, Dynamic Analysis and Design Considerations for High-Level Nuclear Waste Repositories, consists of papers presented at the Symposium sponsored by the Nuclear Dynamic Analysis Committee of the Strucutural Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers held in San Francisco, California on August 19-20, 1992. It brings together the ideas of industry experts, outstanding researchers, program managers, policy makers and practicing engineers in the field of seismic and dynamic analysis and design. These ideas are arranged by six broad categories: 1) General overview of analysis and design; 2) characterization of faulting; 3) characterization of design ground vibratory ground motion; 4) considerations for underground facilities; 5) considerations for surface facilities; and 6) guidelines for instrumentation and monitoring. This proceedings provide discussions on the relative merits and inadequacies of state-of-the-art design/analysis practices and methodologies in the seismic and dynamic analysis and design field in relation to high-level nuclear waste repositories.
