Fwd: Performance & Durability of Reinforced Concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

2nd inquiry!

I am still (desperately) looking for research information, data, information 
sources, and contacts, in government agencies, university research 
facilities, nuclear power plants, and/or nuclear waste storage/disposal 
facilities, regarding the performance characteristics, durability, concrete 
mix specifications, etc., of high-density (heavy weight - ie. wc = >220pcf) 
concrete as used for structural purposes and/or shielding in a nuclear 

Here, at Ontario Hydro, the largest Canadian Electric Utility with 
20-~700MWe CANDU Reactors, we are in the process of reviewing the durability 
of our spent fuel dry storage containers.  This study is being undertaken, 
should the AECL proposed underground disposal facility not be available as 
scheduled for 2025.  Public Environmental Hearings are in progress at the 
moment.  Their findings, recommendations, and report will not be available 
until later this year.

Some research studies are being undertaken by Ontario Hydro Research, 
however they are time consuming and will not be available for years to come. 
 We need some information now, to prepare our options.

Please respond via this NG, or contact me directly at:
