The Finnish research programme on the structural
integrity of nuclear power plants, RATU2 was launched in
1995 for four years to coordinate the independent
national research and development work aiming for
structural safety in NPP's. The general planning and goal
setting of the programme was based on the research need
assessment and evaluation of the previous RATU programme.
The research plans have been updated and refined annually
on the basis of available funding.
The RATU2 programme is briefly introduced in this paper.
The role of RATU2 in the national nuclear energy research
field, the research areas, administrative data, main
objectives and future plans are the topics of this
presentation. See the following technical papers for the
major scientific and technical results, and the last
paper in this symposium for a summary of achievements
within the RATU2 programme.
