... of 10CFR50.46 of USNRC, and another is the best estimate (BE) analysis methodology which needs strict sensitivity and uncertainty analysis. The results achieved by the best estimate analysis are closer to the reality than those achieved by the conservative methodology, and the realistic BELOCA analysis...

... for the safety of nuclear power plants. Recently made advances offer two acceptable options for demonstrating that the safety is ensured with sufficient margin: use of best estimate (BE) computer codes either combined with conservative input data or with realistic input data but associated with evaluation...

... 17 09 2008 In 1988, since the revision of the 10 CFR50.46, the best estimate codes may be used in safety demonstration and licensing, provided that uncertainties are added to the relevant output parameters before comparing them with the acceptance criteria. The uncertainty of output...
