The aim of this paper is to describe a tool for selecting suitable non-destructive testing methods for structural components of concrete in NPPs based on their age and possible degradation mechanism. The paper also aims to critically assess the NDT techniques currently available for non-destructive testing of NPP concrete structures that fulfil the needs of NPP infrastructure evaluation in Finland.
The tool includes representations of (i) the building materials used in the structural components, (ii) the ageing defects affecting the NPP concrete structures, (iii) the available NDT techniques and (iv) the inspection schedule for concrete structures recommended for Finnish NPPs. The tool developed suggests reliable and reasonable non-destructive test techniques for nuclear power companies and utilities to ensure the safety of the nuclear power plant facilities.
