FPoliSolutions Founder and President Dr. Cesare Frepoli has collaborated with Dr. Robert Martin to edit a book capturing the principles of safety evaluation as practiced in the regulated light-water reactor nuclear industry. The full abstract is as follows: Design-Basis Accident Analysis Methods for Light-Water Nuclear Power Plants (https://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/11139) is the definitive reference capturing the principles of safety evaluation as practiced in the regulated light-water reactor nuclear industry. Nuclear safety practitioners and students will find this book’s presentation of nuclear safety analysis methods to be the broadest coverage to date. The subject matter is hierarchically organized top-down, bottom-up corresponding to nuclear safety evaluation best practices, with the details of evaluation methods bookend by chapters on regulatory expectations and licensing considerations. The principles of nuclear safety methods development involve a logical progression from requirements to inquiry to experimentation to modeling and simulation. Much of these principles have evolved from decades of industry-regulator interaction. Regulatory developments during this time have been informed by research related to nuclear power plant resiliency to various transient and accidents. The evaluation model development and application process presented in this text was drawn from the various knowledge bases developed from this research. With the relative stabilization of nuclear safety evaluation methodologies over the last decade, this text is expected to be a valuable resource to the nuclear safety community for many years. The contributors to this text have been intimately involved in various aspects of nuclear safety analysis to bring about this conformity. In addition to this shared passion, the contributors acknowledge the lessons and inspiration of the late Professor Larry Hochreiter, a prominent nuclear safety pioneer, for whom this book is dedicated.
