Abstract

This report summarizes and presents the results of the studies conducted in the frame of European Network on Use of Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) for Evaluation of Ageing Effects to the Safety of Energy Facilities (EC JRC IE Ageing PSA Network). The Network was initiated and will be operated within the framework of the JRC FP6/ 7 Institutional Action "Analysis and Management of Nuclear Accidents" (AMA). Report is focussed on the reliability models and data could be used for assessing the ageing of systems, structures and components including statistical and physical ones. The results of the case study on demonstration of possible application of statistical evaluation of ageing trend in case of I&C and electrical components presented in Appendix B.
