Stress testing has become a popular method for testing systems against extraordinary events, e.g. regarding the emergency preparedness of nuclear power plants or the stability of banks against financial threats. Stress testing differs considerably from the other risk management tools used in industrial applications. VTT is developing a general method for stress testing in cooperation with Finnish environmental authorities. The first application of the method is focused on the mining sector.
