Project Description

COFRENTES NPP ISFSI

Structural calculations of the slab of the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) of Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant

Client: Iberdrola Generación Nuclear

Year: 2018

INGECID has carried out the structural calculations of the slabs of the ISFSI of Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant. These are the slabs on which the casks containing the spent nuclear fuel are stored for the decay of their activity and cooling. The slab design is performed for the static, dynamic and thermal loads established by the standards for the site, using the ANSYS and Midas Civil programmes for this purpose. Thermal loads are the determining factor in the structural dimensioning of this type of elements.
