The Swedish handbook and computer program SACC, Safety Assessment of Components with Cracks, has recently been revised. The major differences compared to the last revision are within the following areas: • It is now a combined deterministic and probabilistic flaw evaluation procedure. • A new deterministic safety evaluation system is included. The main purpose is to more realistically handle large secondary stresses within the procedure. • It is now possible to include J-dominated stable crack growth. • New KI and limit load solutions are also included. • The appendices on material data to be used for nuclear applications and on residual stresses are revised. This paper provides an overview on the new handbook, with an emphasis on the probabilistic flaw evaluation procedure.
