Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book reviews the theory and application of probabilistic safety assessment methods used to calculate nuclear power plant (NPP) durability and lifetime. These methods are reviewed in their application to NPP components and pipelines aging, which are critical elements in the forecasting of NPP resource lifetime and safety.

Special attention is given to probabilistic safety analysis, optimization of the operations through in-service inspection (ISI) utilizing non-destructive testing, and maintenance, service and repair approaches. Practical application of probabilistic methods are considered for:

• optimization of ISI volumes and periodicity;

• optimization of hydraulic tests periodicity and conditions;

• optimization of periodicity and technology of NPP component technical survey;

• optimization of structure and scheduled of NPP preventive maintenance.

This important book includes examples of the application of these methods in the aging and reliability analysis and maintenance of pressurized water reactors and their components, from both the Russian-designed WWER and Western-designed PWR, including, for instance, steam-generator tube integrity assessment methods. It will be a valuable reference for all nuclear plant designers, operators, nuclear safety engineers and managers, as well as academics and researchers in this field.

This work is a revised and translated version of an original Russian-language version of the work published in 2010 by Energoatomizdat, Russia.

Published in association with Cambridge International Science Publishing.

Synopsis:

This book provides an overview of probablistic methods for calculating the strength and operating life of equipment and pipelines of nuclear power plants (NPPs), including using the criteria of resistance to full or partial destruction with the formation of breaks, leaks or defects in the metal, taking into account the aging of equipment and pipelines in service.  The authors pay particular attention to the practical application of the results of calculations of the strength and operating life of equipment and pipelines, the optimization of inservice inspection and maintainance and repair.

The aims of this book are:

-To describe the main methods used in nuclear power engineering for the determination of quantitative characteristics of the reliability of equipment and piping of NPP

-To clarify the mechanisms of aging of equipment and piping in service and discuss the impact of those mechanisms on reliability

-To evaluate the possibility of extensive practical application of the methods for determining the reliability characteristics and the use of these methods for solving the current problems in operation
