Abstract:
The various types of concrete used in the construction of nuclear works, and especially heat-isulating concretes, were subjected to increasing irradiation doses and temperatures. The effects of neutron irradiation on special concretes, cements and granulates were studied on samples irradiated in the Triton pile.
