Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

The behavior and properties of concrete structures for shielding atomic power plants are discussed briefly. Methods are presented for estimating thermal effects associated with linear and non-linear distributions of temperature, nuclear heating, and shield cooling. These data and procedures are subsequently used for analyzing several design problems and thermal criteria.
