The Fire Risk Assessment through Innovative Research Project is a follow-up of the PRISME project series which addresses new fire scenarios and new topics of interest for an improved fire risk assessment in nuclear power plants (NPPs) and other nuclear facilities. It covers three major topics:
The experimental campaigns of the FAIR Project includes tests carried out in the GALAXIE platform facilities (operated by the the Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire (IRSN) at Cadarache), either on a large scale in the DIVA, SATURNE and PLUTON facilities, or with more analytical devices on a medium scale, such as the CISCCO and NYX devices, or still to be designed devices (as for unburned combustion).
An in-depth analysis of the results of all the test campaigns will be carried out (physical phenomena, data processing, uncertainties). This work will be supported by a dedicated analytical working group. Additionally, support tests (for instance, regarding the characterisation of material properties in open atmosphere) will be performed all along the experimental programme.
The project was launched in June 2023.
