This paper focuses on outcomes of our collaborative work as consultants of the Swiss Federal Nuclear Inspectorate (ENSI) that participated in KARISMA benchmark project organized by IAEA. Structural, soil, and soil-structure-interaction (SSI) models of a reactor building at the KashiwazakiKariwa Nuclear Power Station were developed, and the SSI modeling results were compared to actual signals recorded during the Niigataken-Chuetsu-Oki Earthquake (NCOE). Using the SASSI (System for Analysis of… Expand
