The present paper provide an available FEA method for the structural analysis and seismic design of pipelines coated with flexible shielding materials, in nuclear power plant, subjected to earthquake action. The modal and spectral analysis are carried out by using FEM software ANSYS. By comparing the numerical simulation results of dynamical behavior of the pipelines with or without flexible shielding materials, the effects of the flexible shielding material on the seismic performance of the pipeline system in nuclear power plant are discussed. Finally, a local supporting constraint for reducing seismic effects is put forward, which can significantly decrease the maximum stresses in the pipelines coated with flexible shielding materials.
