Abstract:
This article is a summary of a panel discussion that took place during the 123 Forum session at The Fall 2016 ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition in Philadelphia, PA. The panelists and one of the moderators have been actively involved in research efforts to improve understanding of the effects of nuclear environments on concrete and cementitious grouts as well as the ability to monitor degradation of nuclear structures.
