Consideration of severe accidents in a Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) design is an essential component of Defence in Depth (DID) approach used in nuclear safety. Severe accidents have a very low probability, but can have significant consequences resulting from nuclear fuel degradation/damage. Computer codes (deterministic and Probabilistic) are essential tools for understanding how the reactor and its containment might respond under severe accident conditions and their probability of failure. The codes are used as a tool to support engineering judgement, based on which specific measures to mitigate the consequences of severe accidents are taken in NPP design and are also used to determine accident management strategies. Simulators are used for training of operators, students and faculty.
