Abstract: Concrete for Engineering Test Reactor biological shield made from combination of crushed magnetite aggregate and low-alkali Type I Portland cement; combinations of cement and aggregate used in concrete are potentially self-destructive through internal volume changes caused by alkali-aggregate reaction or by thermal growth; this combination was nonreactive and without deleterious thermal growth.
