Structure testing needed

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is seeking ideas to evaluate concrete structures without any type of destruction, and for instrumentation to monitor these structures. Research proposals are sought for testing to identify and detect very small cracks (micrometers) and other flaws in concrete. Also needed are reliable monitoring techniques, such as embedded and surface-mounted sensors to verify the performance of an entombed structure as predicted by performance assessment modeling.

Written proposals will be accepted until July 28. Details can be found on, solicitation no. RS-RES-03-063.
