H. Sohn, J.Y. Yang, H.S. Lee and B.J. Park,    Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), South Korea

Abstract:

The goal of this chapter is to keep readers abreast of available sensing and structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques for NPP structures. In particular, it focuses on the monitoring of pipelines inside NPPs. Since most NPP structures consist of a vast pipeline network system, the chapter first describes the overall piping systems in NPPs, such as a pressurized water reactor type, a boiling water reactor type, and underground pipelines, focusing on their structural characteristics as well as on various types of structural defects. The ...
