Diablo Canyon Lifting Structure

Avila Beach, California
Client: Barnhart Crane & Rigging

Seismic analysis of 70 foot high steel temporary lifting structure for the replacement of a 135-ton nuclear reactor head. The Diablo Canyon Power-Plant is located in a highly active seismic area raising interest in the expected seismic behavior of the temporary lifting structure. The analysis included peak ground accelerations of 1.8g in horizontal direction and 1.2g in vertical direction.
