NE 560 : Probabilistic Risk Assessment and Management (formerly 591-606)

3 Credit Hours

This course is focused on the principles of probabilistic risk assessment and management of complex engineering systems, with a particular focus on nuclear power applications. Topics include fundamental safety and risk concepts, accidents and risk management, a review of major probabilistic risk assessment studies, hazard analysis, qualitative and quantitative systems analysis, human and software reliability, and uncertainty quantification. Emphasis will be placed on the risk-informed and performance-based design and licensing of advanced nuclear reactors under development
