A probabilistic model was developed that considers the likelihood of through-wall penetration of chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking (CISCC) in austenitic stainless steel canisters and compares different population-based sample inspection regimes. This paper describes the inputs and methods used to simulate multiple canisters with a range of susceptibilities. This paper also summarizes results of key illustrative cases.
