    Implementation of Quantitative Fire Risk Assessment in PSA (FIRAS) -project aims at development and application of modelling techniques for fire spread on cables and other fire loads found at NPPs, integration of the quantitative fire risk assessment methods into the NPP fire PRA, and carrying out fire simulations related to but outside OECD PRISME-project aiming to (i) guidance for the design of experiments and (ii) validation of the developed fire models. New experimental techniques have been developed to study the vertical flame spread, and analysis methods have been developed to estimate pyrolysis model parameters from the small scale experiments.
