The Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) supports research and testing of materials for use in large-scale and prototype reactors. Previous analyses indicated that the eastern partition walls of the control room inside the reactor building have insufficient out-of-plane capacity to resist a design earthquake. SGH evaluated and designed upgrades for the unreinforced concrete masonry partition walls that support numerous equipment and utility lines.
