Report Title:Determination of Fire Barriers reliability for fire risk assessment of Nuclear Power Plants (FIREBAN) – Report Year 1
Activity Acronym:FIREBAN
Authors:Patrick van Hees, Jonathan Vallée, Simo Hostikka, Topi Sikanen, Dan Lauridsen, Sebastian Ingermasson,
Abstract:Fires in nuclear power plants can be an important hazard for the overall safety of the facility. An important factor in reducing the spread of the fire is the use of fire barriers. However, it is important to be able to quantify the uncertainty of the result of the fire resistance of a fire barrier for fire risk assessment of nuclear power plants. The first-year report summarises three activities: reliability of fire barriers by calculation with help of Abaqus and FDS, determination of uncertainty and sensitivity of input parameters with modelling of fire resistance of fire barriers.
Keywords:Fire, nuclear power plants, fire barriers, modelling, uncertainty
