Nuclear safety is the top priority for the sustainable operation of Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) installations worldwide. Lifetime extension of NPP has highlighted the critical challenges for the condition assessment of nuclear installations, while also providing valuable insight into the ageing management process of new builds. While NDT is widely established in the nuclear industry regarding the inspection of steel components, such as piping and reactor vessel components, the application of NDT for RCS (Reinforced Concrete Structures) within NPP’s is currently a progressing field. The tremendous advances made in the field of concrete-related NDT have great potential for the implementation in NPP’s. This special session will review the current advances and challenges to the application of NDT on concrete structures in NPP’s.
