NKS Programme Area:
Risk analysis uses and techniques in the non-nuclear field - a Nordic perspective
Kurt E. Petersen
Techniques for probabilistic risk analysis (PRA) have been analyzed
within the Nordic SAK-1 project with special emphasis on
their application in nuclear power plants. The results of the
project are reviewed with respect to non-nuclear applications.
The review is based on discussions with industry in the Nordic
countries. It will focus on evaluation and comparison of available
computer codes, the importance of reliability and accident
data, and the subsequent application of PRA techniques as an
aid in the licensing and regulatory process. Areas, which were
not included in the S&K-1 project but are of great importance in
non-nuclear PRA's, are identified.
