Tasks

The Working Panel (WP) deals with safety-relevant questions concerning component integrity. This especially includes questions related to materials engineering, non-destructive testing, structure-mechanical calculation methods and water chemical (incl. radiolysis gas) aspects for the necessary safety-relevant verification.

If necessary, the WP initiates or supports failure analyses and research programmes for safety-related investigations, resp. for the further development of certain aspects of the component integrity.

Further tasks:

  • Contribution to the work on safety standards.
  • Technical coordination of common response to authorities and external technical expert organisations.
  • Monitoring the state of the art in science and technology.
The Working Panel has implemented the following Working Groups (WG) to fulfill these tasks:
  • WG Non-destructive testing
  • WG Ultrasonic analysis
