Validation of Fire Models Applied to Nuclear Power Plant Safety
Kevin B. McGrattan, Richard D. Peacock, Kristopher J. Overholt
The paper highlights key components of a fire model validation study conducted by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Electric Power Research Institute. These include the selection of fire phenomena of interest to nuclear power plant safety, the selection of appropriate models, the selection of relevant experimental data, and the selection of appropriate evaluation criteria. While the study is motivated by nuclear plant safety, the general procedure and results are appropriate for most industrial applications.
