T9 Current Topics in Probabilistic Risk Analysis

Probabilistic risk analyses (PRAs) assess the safety of nuclear power plants and address many challenging and emerging technical issues. While PRA technology is routinely used to support decision-making, the NRC and the nuclear industry are pursuing continued development and advancement in PRA methods and tools. This session will discuss the status of PRA methods and tools development and solicit feedback on both current efforts and future focus.
