Development of risk assessment methodology against external hazards for sodium-cooled fast reactors

Yamano, Hidemasa  ; Nishino, Hiroyuki ; Okano, Yasushi; Yamamoto, Takahiro*; Takata, Takashi*

The present study is developing risk assessment methodologies that include probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) and margin assessment methodologies against snow, tornado, strong wind, rain, volcanic eruption and forest fire mainly for a sodium-cooled fast reactor. The present paper describes briefly the project overview and then mainly the development of PRA and margin assessment methodologies against strong wind. In the strong wind PRA, the hazard curve was estimated using the Gumbel distributions based on weather data. Next, failure probabilities for components were calculated and event trees were developed. Using them, the strong wind PRA methodology was developed to quantify a core damage frequency. The present study also developed the wind margin assessment methodology that the margin was regarded as wind speed leading to the decay heat removal failure.
