A response spectrum analysis (RSA) has been widely known as one of the methods used for the purpose of an earthquake-resistant design of a structure in the nuclear industry through evaluating the structural integrity during and after seismic events. Recently, as the structures, systems, and components for the design are massive, complex, and complicate, a considerable amount of computational resources and time is required for applying the RSA. Reduced methods have been considered as important technique to resolve computational resources and time problem. For a few decades, various approximate techniques have been developed to obtain the dynamic characteristic in a reduced manner. This paper adopts the model order reduction (MOR) technique known as the one of various reduction methods. The MOR for solving the large linear system in mathematics has been studied by a number of researchers. The MOR is achieved by applying a projection from a higher-order to a lower-order space using Krylov subspaces generated by the Arnoldi algorithm. It has been extended to engineering applications such as circuit analysis, structural analysis, and multi-scale analysis. However, it has not yet been applied in RSA. The aim of this study is to evaluate applicability of the MOR into RSA. Numerical examples demonstrate that the proposed method saves computational costs effectively with maintaining accuracy. Thus, it is confirmed that the proposed method is valid and applicable in predicting seismic responses.
