The nuclear industry has traditionally favoured deterministic design-code use for structural integrity over probabilistic methods. Improved knowledge in the structural integrity field continues to highlight that the unquantified margins associated with current design-codes do not provide a consistent measure of component risk. Consequently, optimal designs and the focus of effort or finance are constrained. Safety remains the number one priority, however issues of availability and affordability are increasingly significant.
The Nuclear Structural Integrity Probabilistics Working Group has developed a guidance document on the proposed application of probabilistic methods. The document provides common terminology, recommended technical approaches, and case studies to illustrate what might be achieved.
This webinar will introduce the guidance document and explain how it is intended to be used. It will also provide an opportunity for delegates to ask clarification questions of a technical representative of the Nuclear Structural Integrity Probabilistics Working Group.
Participants will hear first-hand from a technical representative of the Nuclear Structural Integrity Probabilistics Working Group, who will explain the content of the guidance document and how it is intended to be applied.
