Title: Expected condition of concrete exposed to radiation at age 80 years of reactor operation

Abstract

This report is intended to provide access to information generated by LPI, Inc. on behalf of the US Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Nuclear Energy, Light Water Reactor Sustainability (LWRS) Program and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in 2013. Specifically, estimates of the fast neutron fluence at 80 years of operation on the outer surface of the concrete biological shield (CBS) of US Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) operating in 2013 and an estimate of the effects of gamma radiation on the temperature on the biological shield were determined.
