Research on statistical system testing of critical nuclear control & instrumentation systems.
My research funded by this body has influenced the UK nuclear regulator Office of Nuclear Regulation, and key nuclear licensees such as EDF Energy. Many key nuclear safety systems have already been tested (assured) using my techniques.
UK 'new nuclear build' reactor protection systems will be subjected to these techniques.
It has also resulted in a research program in statistical testing at EDF Group (France).
It is referenced in an international standard (2010).
I was recently asked to contribute advice regarding revisions of an formal IAEA document on nuclear instrumentation and control.
I am performing consultancy for companies tendering to EDF Group to perform ST. These companies cite Bristol as 'pioneers of the technique'.
