A consortium has been formed, sponsored by the European Commission, to perform a project with the acronym NURBIM. The NURBIM project is focusing on the definition of best practice methodologies for performing risk analyses and establishing a set of criteria for the acceptance of risk quantities that can help Regulatory bodies in Europe to accept Risk-Informed In-Service Inspection (RI-ISI) as a valid tool for managing plant safety. One of the main areas within NURBIM has been Work Package 4 (WP-...

Abstract Probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) simulates the behavior of cracked structures and propagates uncertainties from input parameters to a failure probability or its uncertain estimate. In nuclear technology, this approach supports the assessment of the rupture probability of highly reliable pipes, which is an important parameter for the safety analysis of a nuclear power plant. For the appropriate probabilistic modelling of a structure with consideration of uncertainties, but also for...

Abstract In this study, a systematic three-dimensional finite element analyses (3D FEA) are performed to evaluate the Mode II stress intensity factor (SIF) for circumferential through-wall cracked pipe under torsion moment. A wide range of crack lengths and pipe radius over thickness ratios are considered. Empirical solution of the mid-thickness Mode II SIF is developed as functions of crack lengths and pipe sizes. The deviating angle and the effective SIF regarding a through-wall crack (TWC) un...

Abstract This paper presents the first output of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Coordinated Research Project (CRP), titled Methodology for Assessing Pipe Failure Rates in Advanced Water-Cooled Reactors (AWCRs), launched in 2018. This IAEA CRP is aimed at developing a good-practices document for estimating the probabilistic failure metrics of piping in AWCRs. The reliability of piping that comprise the Reactor Coolant Pressure Boundary (RCPB) is important for maintaining safe and s...

AbstractThe content of risk-based assessment and management and risk-based inspection and maintenance (RBI&M) employed in process plants are addressed in this article. Probabilistic analyses including probabilistic risk assessment developed in the engineering field over the past few decades are reviewed first. Following that, RBI and risk-informed management employed in the nuclear industry and risk-based inspection, maintenance, and other risk-based approaches used in chemical plants as well as...

Abstract A probabilistic structural integrity assessment framework utilizing a two-loop Monte Carlo simulation process is proposed. The process and interpretation of the results are demonstrated using an example of Steam Generator (SG) tubing with fretting flaws. Acceptance standards established using a 95/90/90 criterion (which represents 95% probability at 90th percentile with 90% one-sided confidence) is proposed and compared with the generally accepted deterministic and traditional probabili...
