Abstract

Aircraft impact is considered as a relevant loading case in designing modern nuclear
power plants. Numerical methods and models need to be verified against experimental data in
order to guarantee the reliability of results when simulating full scale applications. The
IMPACT test facility has been developed starting in 2003 and is has reached a mature phase
where well repeatable tests can be conducted and broad range of dynamic data acquired reliably.
