The System-integrated Modular Advanced ReacTor (SMART) is a small modular integral-type reactor for the seawater desalination and small-scaled power generation under development in Korea. Although the SMART is innovative reactor with a sensible mixture of the proven technology and advanced design features aimed at enhanced safety, there is no valid prototype which can specify the structural dynamic characteristics of reactor internals. Thus, extensive research for the technology verification and standard design approval are in progress. One of them is to perform the dynamic characteristics identification of reactor internals. Especially, it is focused on the added mass effect caused by the fluid-structure interaction because the reactor internals is submerged in the reactor coolant. The extracted dynamic characteristics such as the natural frequencies and the vibratory mode shapes can be used as the basis on further dynamic analysis, for example, seismic analysis and a postulated pipe break analysis.
