A Methodology for Risk Informed In-Service Inspection for Safety Related Systems

CSIR-SERC–BRNS Grant-in-Aid Project’

  • Methodologies developed for probabilistic failure assessment of piping components
    • Approaches
      • First order reliability methods or simulation
      • Markov chain model
    • degradation mechanisms considered – erosion-corrosion, thermal fatigue, vibration fatigue and stress corrosion cracking
  • Procedure for incorporating the results of in-service inspection on Markov Chain modelling
  • Software for probabilistic failure assessment of pipeworks (RISCMarkov) – developed and handed over to BARC
