Any good info on Fault Trees?

I saw a bunch of uploads about PRA, so I figured there might be some info on fault trees here, as well. I searched, but couldn't find any posted. Are there any such documents, here? Both Fault Trees and Event Trees are of interest to me.

Thank you.

Re: WHO Fukushima Health Effects Report

Having said that, the most probable reason that the results were interpreted/quoted that way is that thyroid cancer mortality is much lower that other cancers. Had the expected rate of, let's say, leukemia, was increased by 70%, the conclusions would have been different, since leukemia mortality is...

I had similar issues with searching, last week. But today, when I logged on, I could search all sections without any problem. A fluke ??

Re: New, small, self-contained nuclear plants

Why would something like this be preferable to a 100 MW or 200 MW unit, i.e., the more mainstream SMRs proposed?

Also, I saw something about them pulling out from the DOE SMR program, or something like that. Any idea why?

Re: NRC - Post Fukushima - External Events

Well, this is great and sounds good, but other that a pretty complete list of what utilities are affected, this is not very informative.
