Title: Radiometric Testing of Density of Concrete for Radiation Shielding
Author(s): A. Honig and L . Pospisilova
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1439-1468
Keywords: concretes; consolidation; density (mass/volume); fresh concretes; hardened concretes; homogeneity; nuclear reactor containment; nuclear reactors; pressure vessels; quality control; radiation shielding; radiometry; tests; ultrasonic tests
Abstract:The biological shields of nuclear reactors are partly thick-walled concrete constructions which do not require special attention, as far as their strength is concerned. . .In this report some types of radiometric probes suitable for density measurement, as well as the results of the reactor shield construction of a nuclear power station, an experimental nuclear reactor, and a biological shield of a betatron are described. The RILEM program: comparision of commerical portable gages for radiometric determination of building materials density and moisture is discussed.
