Title: Industry Fire Modeling Enhancement Tools and Methods

Abstract

Modeling and implementing fire safety for nuclear power plants is a costly activity. Because of the complexity of fire phenomenon and multiple operational procedures, it is difficult to computationally provide assurance that the mitigation methods are adequate for critical areas using current analysis methods. An economical method to provide more accurate modeling and optimize mitigation methods is needed to improve nuclear power viability. This report describes the background of current fire model strategy; the first stage of a tool to help reduce resources needed in fire analysis and the plan for the next step in advancing fire. The report lays out the path decided upon by Idaho National Laboratory and Industry representatives to best help reduce costs and improve realism in Fire Probabilistic Risk Analysis.
