Part of the Advances in Risk Analysis book series (AIRA, volume 2)

Abstract

This paper describes a Human Reliability Analysis (HRA) performed using the Technique for Human Error Rate Prediction (THERP) as presented in NUREG/CR-2254. The entire HRA is documented, including the assumptions made based on a task analysis of the plant and of the accident being evaluated, the estimates of human error probabilities (HEPs) found in NUREG/CR-1278, the levels of dependence assigned, and the recovery factors analyzed. The case cited involves the establishment of feed and bleed following a loss of steam generator feed.
