Current state of research on pressurized water reactor safety
This chapter provides an overview of the most significant R&D efforts on metallic components, civil engineering structures, and other components that play a role in ensuring the safe operation of pressurized water reactors in France's NPPs and which, in particular, play a confinement role ("barrier"). The R&D efforts in which IRSN is particularly involved are related to: the behavior of components during accident conditions (earthquake, core melt, etc.); aging in a broad sense, i.e. the effectsdoi:10.1051/978-2-7598-2165-5-014 fatcat:zvpyojnsives7f6h7uxtxlmwxy
