To ensure a high safety level to the French nuclear power plants, safety authorities impose to the plant designers to take into consideration several cases of hypothetical severe accidents to which the plant must be able to resist. The aim is to guarantee that even a core melt accident would not require any stringent countermeasures such as evacuation or relocation of the population beyond the immediate vicinity of the plant.
