Nuclear Power Concrete Technology

This research program provides new knowledge for managing concrete structures at both Swedish and Finnish nuclear power plants. The purpose is to safeguard the entire life of the structures whilst ensuring safe, reliable and cost-effective operations. In order to do that, we need to build new expertise in concrete technology.

We also contribute to building expertise in the nuclear industry, the government, universities and high schools. Our program includes both doctoral projects and contract research. The focus of the research is to:

• investigate local climates in the reactor inclusion to identify environments that cause degradation and affect the density of the enclosure
• develop tools for studying clamping cables and sealing plates
• verify calculation tools used in the reactor inclusion
• investigate safety-related issues in the waterways
