This paper deals with the methods of seismic analysis of LMR reactor tanks. Mathematical models of a reactor tank and LMR plant are given. Various methods of seismic analysis suitable for the analysis of fluid-structure interaction of LMR plants and their advantages and drawbacks are described. Emphasis is placed on efficiency of the numerical algorithm. The computer code FLUSTR-ANL, deveoped for seismic analysis of LMR components, is also described.
