Title: The development of non destructive remote measurement method of concrete contamination

Abstract

In the frame of the decommissioning of nuclear power plants or laboratories, the penetration depth of the contamination in concrete surfaces: walls, floor, is unknown. Its knowledge requires sample analysis, that is time consuming and expensive. The main goal of the work is to define and evaluate a non-destructive measurement technique for the evaluation of the contamination depth in concrete. Estimation of accuracy of measurements for different contamination levels, time of measurement, value of natural radionuclides (NRN) concentration in concrete and background radiation dose were carried out. The type of relevant detector depends of selected limiting sensitivity, the weight and sizes of the device. (authors)
