The seismic analysis on reactor structure was performed with a new generation of finite element software. The amount of freedom degree of the model was more than twenty millions. The typical responses to operational basis earthquake excitation were given. They are larger than those with two-dimensional simplified finite element method, and the reasons of this phenomenon were analyzed. The feasibility of seismic analysis on large-scale three-dimensional finite element model under existing hardware condition was demonstrated, so some technological reserves for dynamic analysis on complicated equipments or systems in nuclear engineering are provided.
