Criteria for Investigations of Nuclear Facility Sites for Seismic Hazard Assessments

This standard provides criteria and guidelines for conducting geological, seismological, geophysical, and geotechnical investigations needed to provide information to support the following:  (1) seismic source characterization input to a probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA); (2) evaluation of tectonic permanent ground deformation hazard using probabilistic fault displacement hazard analysis for surface-faulting sources and probabilistic tectonic deformation hazard analysis for blind fault sources; (3) site response analysis input to PSHAs; (4) nontectonic, earthquake-induced ground failure hazard; (5) foundation stability.
