Process Hazard Approach to Probabilistic Risk Assessment for advanced reactors

Main description

When designing and developing nuclear systems like nuclear plants, engineers historically use science-based analyses and qualification. Such process is time-consuming and moreover, forgetting valid and sometimes more efficient solutions. Thanks to the development of unprecedented processing capacities, probabilistic models are now accurate and quick enough to be profitably used in design activities for advanced reactors projects. Framatome developed Process hazard PRA computing tool creating additional possibilities for optimized projects.
