Description/Abstract The state of knowledge concerning aircraft crash hazards to nuclear power plants is critically evaluated. This effort is part of a study to analyze the potential effects of offsite hazards upon the safety of nuclear power plants and to develop a technical basis for the assessment of siting approaches for such facilities. The evaluation includes the deterministic modeling of aircraft crash scenarios and threat environments, the estimation of the effects on and the response of the vital plant systems, and the probabilistic aspects of the crash problem, i.e., data bases and statistical methodologies. Also critically reviewed are past licensing experience and regulatory practice with respect to aircraft crash hazards. In general it is found that the data bases, methodologies and modeling approaches are adequate to estimate the threat and plant response. However, this knowledge is not always fully used in specific applications.
