This paper describes the probabilistic nonlinear analysis of the hermetic steel door of the reactor shaft failure due to extreme pressure and temperature. The scenario of the hard accident in nuclear power plant (NPP) and the methodology of the calculation of the fragility curve of the failure overpressure using the probabilistic safety assessment PSA 2 level is presented. The model and resistance uncertainties were taken into account in the response surface method (RSM).
