Abstract

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. This paper provides a summary of the achievements related to the original objectives for the RATU2 programme from an administrative point of view. An overview on the new facilities and human resources is also given. The main conclusions of the interim evaluation are also reported. The major scientific and technical results are described in more detail in the technical papers of this symposium.
