This study couples structural analyses of four typical U.S. nuclear power plant containments with existing probabilistic risk analysis (PRA) models to assess the effects of degradation. This method is used to determine the increase in the early release frequencies (risk) due to postulated cases of corrosion in the steel liners and shells, as well as other forms of degradation.
