Abstract

In the first part of paper the authors discuss the general problems of uncertainties in safety assessments. The main types of potential errors are reviewed. Limitations of the traditional methods of evaluation - deterministic and probabilistic - are discussed. The authors review the main "uncertainty oriented" mathematical methods that are more suitable for safety assessments than the traditional ones. Possibilities of their application to safety assessments are discussed, with special attention to spatial and temporal uncertainties and risk analysis. As a conclusion, new steps and contents are suggested for safety reports, taking into account the uncertainty of the input data.
