Highlights•Seismic fragility of structural components in base isolated NPP is computed.•Dynamic integration, Response Surface, FORM and Monte Carlo Simulation are adopted.•Refined approach for modeling the non-linearities behavior of isolators is proposed.•Beyond-design conditions are addressed.•The preliminary design of the isolated IRIS is the application of the procedure.
