Meaning of BEYOND DESIGN-BASIS ACCIDENTS in English

BEYOND DESIGN-BASIS ACCIDENTS

This term is used as a technical way to discuss accident sequences that are possible but were not fully considered in the design process because they were judged to be too unlikely. As the regulatory process strives to be as thorough as possible, "beyond design-basis" accident sequences are analyzed to fully understand the capability of a design.
