In December 2008, the Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) approved a proposal of the Working Group on Integrity and Ageing of Components and Structures (WGIAGE) to conduct a round robin study, called IRIS_2010, where the different computer codes, modelling approaches methods and results were to be compared to data and other codes used to determine effective means of analysing the structural and vibrational effects of a postulated missiles impact on a NPP.

This report documents the main results and conclusions of the benchmark study officially launched in February 2010 with the participation of 28 teams from 20 different organisations and 11 countries. The study concluded in December 2010 with a final workshop to discuss the results of the simulations performed.
