Abstract: The paper summarizes the main findings of the joint project between JRC and Swedis partners to determine failure probabilities for copper cast iron inserts for disposal of spent nuclear fuel. The paper describes the statistical test programme and it key results, how these data are used in a probabilistic analysis for canister failure. It is shown that failure probabilities are extremely low. The results of the paper can be used to derive acceptance criteria for defects, material properties and geometrical design parameters.
