As for thin walled cylindrical liquid storage tanks in nuclear power plants, the current elastic design guideline against seismic loading might result in too conservative component design as compared with elasto-plastic design in general industries. Therefore, it is thought possible to make the design guideline more reasonable by taking dynamic response reduction into account. In this series of study, experiments using scaled models were carried out, and seismic behavior of thin walled cylindrical liquid storage tanks was simulated to investigate energy absorption capacity and seismic resistance of those tanks. In this 3rd report of series of studies, seismic behavior of tanks was simulated to estimate a dynamic response reduction factor. This factor is based on the energy absorption capacity of structures. Through experiments and numerical study, a response reduction factor to design thin walled cylindrical liquid storage tanks has been proposed.
