Modeling Concrete Structures Affected by Alkali Silica Reaction: Hydro-Quebec Approach for Hydraulic and Nuclear Power Plants
This report presents the analytical and modeling approach used by Hydro-Quebec in analyzing the structures affected by alkali silica reaction at its hydroelectric plants and nuclear power plant.
This study examines combining bendable concrete (also known as engineered cementitious composite) and high-strength concrete to construct taller wind turbine towers with enhanced durability. It discusses development, characterization, and selection of materials and quantifies the economic advantages.
Underwater Inspection of Concrete Structures: Landscape Study on Remote Operating Vehicles (ROVs) and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)
This report discusses the current state of underwater inspection and maintenance for hydroelectric facilities and investigates tools and techniques from other industries (such as remotely operated vehicles) for potential use in the electric power industry.
