Abstract:The reinforced concrete housing for the linear electron accelerator had unusually severe requirements for dimensional stability. These special requirements resulted in a "tailored" structural concrete specification with particular emphasis placed on temperature control, shrinkage, and quality. Included is a brief description of the preliminary concrete investigations and the concrete specification highlights. The construction methods, quality control, properties of the concrete, recent dimensional changes in the structure, cracking, and epoxy injection are discussed.
