PROBABILISTIC STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY OF PWR PRESSURE VESSELS
The main conclusions and statements coming from the last studies in the field of probabilistic structural reliability of reactor pressure vessels are reported. Particular reference is made to the outcomes of analyses carried out by the COVASTOL code. The second part of the paper approaches the problem of the identification and analytical modelling of cumulative damage processes, with a brief overview of the state of the art and an outline of the research going on at the Ispra JRC.
