The Materials & Fuels Complex (MFC) at the Idaho National Laboratory focuses on research and development of nuclear fuels.  SGH developed seismic fragilities for the MFC-704 structure (also referred to as the Fuel Manufacturing Facility) for input to a seismic probabilistic risk assessment.  The overall methodology implemented the guidance of Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) TR-103959, supplemented by EPRI 1019200.
