    Abstract

    The fundamental challenge in nuclear power plant (NPP) engineering is to ensure and demonstrate the safety of the NPP, which is a complex sociotechnical system, by considering all types of hazards including rare and extreme conditions, all disciplines and all types of system elements and all life-cycle phases and activities. Deterministic and probabilistic analysis methods must be applied to show the compliance with regulatory requirements.
