Assessment of the effects of a large aircraft impact on a NPP reactor building are the basic topics of the present work. The focus is on the dynamic response of the internal sub-structures, by means of floor response spectra. Factors influencing the floor response spectra, as the nonlinearities of the impact area, load time function shape and the impact velocity are pointed out and subsequent conclusions are made. Alternative motion parameters for assessment of the damage potential and procedure for indirect assessment of the equipment capacity are also discussed.
