The research topics being addressed in the CONAGE project are strongly linked by
key aspects of ageing management, where critical input is needed to support decision-based actions, whether related to inspection and maintenance actions on existing concrete infrastructure, or the design of new concrete infrastructures.
The research topics are divided into three work packages, addressing i) the non-destructive evaluation of NPP concrete infrastructure (WP1); ii) the risk of internal
expansive reactions for NPP concrete infrastructure (WP2); and iii) steel liner and
anchor corrosion in contact with concrete (WP3).
In the following sections, the research undertaken during the first two years of
the project in each of the three work packages is briefly presented.
