The basic research project :“Safety of Complex Technologies” consists of and integrates deterministic and probabilistic approaches to solving the main safety issues of process systems, primarily in the nuclear engineering area. This interdisciplinary research focuses on safety from three angles: point of view of thermal-hydraulic processes during transients, point of view of structural analysis and integrity of systems and point of view of risk and reliability. Techniques applied for the analysis of phenomena, components and systems lead to the results and conclusions, which can significantly contribute to the improved safety. Research deals with important tangible topics of the safety science, which are mutually related and which complement each other i.e.: A. uncertainties associated with predictions of small break loss of coolant accidents, B. boiling phenomena in a vertical channel, C. investigations and simulations of global experiments, D. experiments of separate effects, E. modelling of leakage and integrity of pressurised pipes, F. reliability, risk and safety culture, G. Algorithms for prediction of accident state. The major objectives of this interdisciplinary research project are the improvement of nuclear safety and the assessment of risk in complex technologies.
