Primer on durability of nuclear power plant reinforced concrete structures : a review of pertinent factors

Author: D Naus; U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Division of Fuel, Engineering, and Radiological Research.; Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Publisher: Washington, DC : Division of Fuel, Engineering, and Radiological Research, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 2007.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : National government publication : English
Summary:
The objective of this study was to provide a primer on the environmental effects that can affect the durability of nuclear power plant concrete structures. As concrete ages, changes in its properties will occur as a result of continuing microstructural changes (i.e., slow hydration, crystallization of amorphous constituents, and reactions between cement paste and aggregates), as well as environmental influences.  Read more...

Abstract:

The objective of this study was to provide a primer on the environmental effects that can affect the durability of nuclear power plant concrete structures. As concrete ages, changes in its properties will occur as a result of continuing microstructural changes (i.e., slow hydration, crystallization of amorphous constituents, and reactions between cement paste and aggregates), as well as environmental influences. These changes do not have to be detrimental to the point that concrete will not be able to meet its performance requirements. Concrete, however, can suffer undesirable changes with time because of improper specifications, a violation of specifications, or adverse performance of its cement paste matrix or aggregate constituents under either physical or chemical attack. Contained in this report is a discussion on concrete durability and the relationship between durability and performance, a review of the historical perspective related to concrete and longevity, a description of the basic materials that comprise reinforced concrete, and information on the environmental factors that can affect the performance of nuclear power plant concrete structures. Commentary is provided on the importance of an aging management program.
