Have a look at the latest scientific paper written by the INSIDER partners!
A new INSIDER publication is now available. This review paper is entitled “State-of-the-art and challenges of non-destructive techniques for in-situ radiological characterization of nuclear facilities to be dismantled” and has been published in the Nuclear Engineering and Technology Journal. The paper has been written as a result of the work undertaken in INSIDER Work Package 5.
This paper reports on the state-of-the-art of the main non-destructive assay (NDA) techniques usually used for in-situ radiological characterization of nuclear facilities subject to a decommissioning programme. For the sake of clarity and coherence, they have been classified as environmental radiation monitoring, surface contamination measurements, gamma spectrometry, passive neutron counting and radiation cameras. Particular mention is also made here to the various challenges that each of these techniques must currently overcome, together with the formulation of some proposals for a potential evolution in the future.
