The ETC-C and RCC-CW are the codes used to design and build the civil structures of nuclear power plants. The ETC-C (EPR Technical Code for Civil Works) is specific to EPR nuclear power plant whereas the RCC-CW (Rules for design and construction of PWR nuclear civil works) can be applied to others projects. Both these codes were published by AFCEN (French Association for design, construction and surveillance rules of nuclear power plant components), respectively in 2012 and 2015.
This training session explains the requirements of the part 1: Design of the ETC-C and RCC-CW codes.
The course is delivered in English.
Nuclear safety related buildings.
Advanced concepts and rules involved in the design of the Civil structures of the EPR nuclear island.
Relations between the different parts of the ETC-C Code.
Relations between the Eurocodes and the ETC-C Code.
The purpose of this 3 day training session is to outline the requirements of the ETC-C 2012 and RCC-CW 2015 codes. Dedicated to the first part (Part 1) of the code, it covers all the aspects of the design for Civil engineering structures of nuclear power plants (geotechnics, seismic anaylis, concrete, prestressing, liner, anchorages, steel works…).
