Developed by the nuclear power industry, the FLEX strategy involves placing emergency equipment in multiple plant locations—and also staging portable equipment in several off-site locations for transportation to the plant for mitigation and recovery operations. This report is a compilation of questions and answers generated by the utility FLEX Coordinators Group and the FLEX Preventive […]
Concrete structures can degrade as a result of alkali-silica reactions, and nuclear plants need to develop aging management programs to maintain structural integrity for extended operations. To support that work, this report reviews research on how alkai-silica reactions change the mechanical properties and behaviors of concrete structures.
