MUSA
MANAGEMENT AND UNCERTAINTIES
OF SEVERE ACCIDENTS

European H2020 project
about
Establishing a harmonised approach for the analysis of uncertainties and sensitivities associated with SA analysis among EU and non-EU entities

The MUSA project proposes an innovative research agenda to advance the predictive capability of Severe Accidents (SA) analysis codes by combining them with the best available/improved UQ tools and embedding accident management as an intrinsic aspect of SA analyses. The project is identifying and quantifying uncertainty sources in SA analyses, reviewing and adaptating UQ methods and testing such methods against reactor and SFP accident analyses, including AM.

OBJECTIVES

The overall objective of the MUSA project is to assess the capability of SA codes when modelling reactor and SFP accident scenarios of GEN II, GEN III and GEN III+ reactor designs.

EXPECTED IMPACTS

As a first-of-a-kind project addressing Management and Uncertainties of Severe Accident analysis involving industry leading organisations in a multinational context, the project is expected to have significant impacts in improving reactor safety.

RESULTS

All of the public deliverables produced within the MUSA project will be made available on the website.
