Description
CASE STUDIES IN NUCLEAR CODES AND STANDARDS
Presentation of major issues associated with systems and component engineering relative to the nuclear power industry and the industry's consensus codes and standards. The course provides an explanation of the necessity of consensus codes and standards, a high-level view of codes and standards organizations, and shows how codes and standards promotes the safe operation of nuclear power plants. The course discusses how the NRC adopts and makes use of consensus codes and standards. It covers codes and standards for current, advanced and next generation, and high-temperature reactors, including global conformity assessment requirements. Relevant codes and standards from other communities, including nuclear quality assurance, are also summarized.
