Launched in September 2020, METIS is a 48 month long Horizon 2020 project funded under the Euratom research and training programme that brings together 16 partners from 9 different countries. Coordinated by Dr. Irmela Zentner, expert research engineer at EDF, METIS focuses on the three facets of seismic risk assessment of nuclear reactors—hazard, fragility and consequence—to improve the Probabilistic Safety Assessment methodology and develop tools for the more accurate evaluation of nuclear power plant resilience under different seismic conditions.
The following opensource tools are used in the METIS project.
General purpose FEM code available with salome-meca platform
Simulation platform including pre and post processing (geometry, mesh, analyses, visualisation, etc.)
FEM tool dedicated to earthquake engineering
