Risk-based approach to plant life management
2003 (English)In: Nuclear Engineering and Design, ISSN 0029-5493, E-ISSN 1872-759X, Vol. 221, no 03-jan, 293-300 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The growing interest in risk-based management is driven by the need of developing strategies that lead to an optimal safety versus cost balance. The general philosophy behind risk-based management is briefly described here and discussed. It is formally shown that the core damage frequency can be factored into a system (PSA) part and component failure frequency part. Some of the procedures, currently applied in risk-based inspection, are discussed. The basic elements for failure frequency calculations are presented and discussed. A quantitative risk-based inspection study performed for the Oskarshamn 1 unit is briefly presented as an example of how risk-based procedures can be applied.
