    The research in three new technological areas aiming to the improvement of structural safety of mechanical components and pipings is presented. These are primarily applied to primary piping but the same approach can be applied to other components as well. Computer simulation of ultrasonic inspection can be applied to all components where ultrasonic inspection is used to evaluate the structural integrity and high reliablity of inspection is expected. Simulation is an important tool of inspection qualification and its importance is still growing when moving to risk-based inservice inspection programmes. The two other areas presented here are research on fluid - structure interaction and water chemistry interaction.
