At the beginning, we introduce two basic terms which will be used in all considerations to come. Both of them are “events”:

  • Failure of component by a considered failure mode, when challenged. (This failure mode is presented in a PRA model by specifically defined single basic event.)

  • Occurrence of specified top event representing certain damage state (e.g. reactor core damage).
