Evaluation of Uncertainties in Relation to Severe Accidents and Level-2 Probabilistic Safety Analysis

NEA/CSNI/R(2007)2

Uncertainty in relation to several severe accident phenomena plays a major role in probabilistic safety analyses involving beyond-design-basis accident scenarios for nuclear power plants. The technical papers presented at this workshop, held in Aix-en-Provence, France on 7-9 November 2005, are valuable for nuclear safety analysts, nuclear power plant designers and R&D managers, especially with regard to unresolved severe accident issues or issues where risk uncertainty is high.
