Methods Advances in EPRI/NRC Fire Risk Re-quantification Project: Modeling of Post-Fire Safe Shutdown in Fire PRA
A significant portion of a fire risk assessment requires examination of the plant response to a postulated set of fire scenarios. The plant response to a given fire scenario depends on the systems damaged by the fire, the plant’s post-fire safe-shutdown design attributes, and operating practices — including applicable emergency procedures and expected operator response to the scenario. This paper presents an overview of the techniques being documented under the EPRI/NRC Fire Risk Re-quantification Project.
