Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The reliability analysis and risk assessment of nuclear systems need to be thorough and trustable, in order to support robust design and decision making. In this context, the present Special Issue aims to present the recent advancements in the methods and techniques employed to conduct the reliability analysis and risk assessment of nuclear systems.

Applications of interest include (but are not limited to) internal events risk assessment, external hazards risk assessment, natural hazards risk assessment, climate change risk assessment, uncertainty and sensitivity analysis, active and passive system reliability, structural reliability, structural health management, disaster management, and risk-based decision making.

This Special Issue is motivated by the presentation of fascinating works on these topics at the ICSRS Conference, which is to be held in Bologna, Italy, on 22–24 November 2023. Extended versions of selected works presented at the Conference will be solicited. Relevant papers from other authors are also welcome.
