This Module discusses advantages and limitations of deterministic and probabilistic safety analysis. Further it covers the regulatory requirements for the use of deterministic and probabilistic safety analysis and at the end presents the concept of integrated risk informed decision making.
Case studies discuss the off-site radiological dose criteria for different plant states, from normal operation to accident conditions. Criteria for each plant state are presented. Further, for each plant condition a set of postulated initiating events for each plant state are presented. Work by students in working groups is also envisaged as part of the case study. There are 10 multiple choice questions that he lecturer can use for the weekly exam.
The textbook contains 20 pages, and there are 44 transparencies for a 3-months course and 28 transparencies for a one-month course.
