    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.
