METHODS AND TOOLS INNOVATIONS FOR SEISMIC RISK ASSESSMENT

Project description

Assessing the seismic safety of nuclear power plants

Nuclear power plants (NPPs) need to be able to withstand the effects of an earthquake. The EU-funded METIS project therefore aims to develop rigorous and efficient methodologies and tools to determine the seismic safety of NPPs. It will support simulation results with experimental data and experience feedback within the framework of Bayesian approaches and machine learning. By these means, the project will improve the predictability of best estimate and beyond-design seismic analysis. Together with the propagation of epistemic and aleatory uncertainties, this will make analyses more reliable and increase confidence in safety assessment results. Consequently, the project’s results will help nuclear operators to conduct their periodic safety reviews and achieve EU-wide nuclear safety objectives.
