Paper No: ICONE21-16570
... The uncertainty propagation is an important segment of quantitative uncertainty analysis for complex computational codes (e.g., RELAP5 thermal-hydraulics) computations. Different sampling techniques, dependencies between uncertainty sources, and accurate inference on results are among the issues...

... exchanger is 3.53g which has the inherent randomness about the median and the uncertainty in the median value, respectively, 0.36 and 0.47, and the high confidence low probabilistic failure (HCLPF) capacity is 0.9g, so the air heat exchanger has a better seismic capacity. Seismic Fragility Analysis...

... organizations. The computer code user represents a source of uncertainty that can influence the results of system code calculations. This influence is commonly known as the ‘user effect’ and stems from the limitations embedded in the codes as well as from the limited capability of the analysts to use the codes...
