🖋️ Fulvio Mascari from ENEA wrote an article for the European Technical Safety Organisations Network (ETSON) website last month. The article focuses on the application of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) methods against Integral Experiments (AUQMIE) in the MUSA European project.
“MUSA has an “innovative research agenda” in order to move beyond the state-of-the-art regarding the predictive capability of Severe Accident (SA) analysis codes by combining them with the best available or improved UQ tools” he wrote. “By doing so, not only the prediction of timing for the failure of safety barriers and of radiological Source Term (ST) will be possible, but also the quantification of the uncertainty bands of selected analysis results, considering any relevant source of uncertainty, will be provided. The achievement of the overall objective is assured by a consistent and coherent work programme, reflected in the technical Work Packages structure.”
