Risk Importance Measures in the Design and Operation of Nuclear Power Plants

Description | Details

The Nuclear Engineering and Technology for the 21st Century monograph series provides current and future engineers, researchers, technicians and other professionals and practitioners with practical, concise but key information concerning the nuclear technologies from areas of medical applications, mining, processing and manufacturing, environmental monitoring to safe and energy-efficient plant operation and electricity generation. In using risk-informed approaches for ensuring safety of operating nuclear power plants (NPPs), risk importance measures obtained from probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs) of the plants are integral elements of consideration in many cases. Obtaining these measures in appropriate forms is helpful for decision makers and can facilitate the use of risk information.
