Abstract

The LWR reactor safety research is directed to substantiate results on probabilistic risk assessment by applying developed methodologies to well chosen reactor plant systems and by implementing national data in the European Data Bank The LOBI-LOCA investigation continued successfully. In order to assure the integrity of the reactor loops, a broad materials and structural reliability programme is being performed, which has also lead to the execution of PISC II, an international exercise of non-destructive testing of steel plates and nozzles. In the field of LMFBR safety progress concerns primarily the release and development on pilot version of the European accident code and the containment code development and validation programme (COVA). JRC successfully promoted cooperation with and between member countries which allows for quicker progress through a division of tasks and mutual help. The European PAHR programme concentrates on in-pile and out-of-pile tests using real reactor materials, and is designed to prove the concept of in-vessel coolability of core debris.
