R. Palaniswamy, Black & Veatch, Ann Arbor, United States,
Abstract: Because of varied uses and performance/safety requirements of concrete for high, medium and low level radioactive wastes, a review of the current ACI 349 Code document was carried out to accommodate these special classes of structures. A subcommittee has focussed on collecting/sorting information and synthesizing this information and synthesizing this information into logical design guidelines and requirements. Many conclusions regarding material requirements, design/analysis, specifications, and recommended construction details are summarized.
