Lister ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) UO2 mixed with gadolinium oxide, for gadolinium is an effective burnable poison in that it absorbs neutrons but in time becomes depleted in the absorbing isotopes.   In this paper, nuclear power plant concrete structures are described and their operating experience noted. Primary considerations related to management of their aging are noted: degradation mechanisms, damage modeling, and material performance; assessment and repair; and applications of structural reliability theory. Several topics are noted where additional research would be of by:

      Thermal and Nuclear power plants. Nuclear (Atomic) Power Plant Advantages of Nuclear power plant: Space required is less when compared with other power plants. Nuclear power plant is the only source which can meet the increasing demand of electricity at a reasonable cost. A nuclear power plant uses much less fuel than a fossil-fuel plant.   We generalize the results of studying the effect of thermal aging on the mechanical properties of the base and weld metal of equipment and piping of the first loop of nuclear power plants with VVÉR and RBMK reactors in the course of long-term operation. Comparison of the initial properties of these materials with those after and 2 h of operation shows that the changes are mostly Cited by: 5.

    The U.S. is set to become the first nation to decide whether it's safe to operate nuclear power plants for 80 years, twice as long as initially allowed.   pointed out the importance to continue with ageing research as the power plants have to proof that a life time extension to years will be possible. The possibility to collect data from Barsebäck nuclear power plant could be used. For each power plant an Ageing Management Program should be established.

Velan valves are the global power industry's clear choice for reliable nuclear service, with an installation base that includes two-thirds of the world's nuclear power stations—% of plants in Canada, France, and South Korea, and 90% of plants in USA.

Velan is a leading manufacturer of. Safety of Aging Nuclear Plants 2 u nchecked, aging degradation has the potential to reduce the safety of operating nuclear power plants.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the commer-cial nuclear power industry, and others engage in a range of activities addressing the challenges imposed by power plant aging. Right now there are three types of aging management that are used, including experience-based, regulatory-based and economic-based.

Conclusion. Although the IAEA has multiple protocols set in place to protect people and the environment, there are still many advances that can be made to help improve the structural stability of power plants. A service life management system of concrete structures in nuclear power plants is being developed in VTT in cooperation with the Finnish nuclear companies TVO and FORTUM.
