Nuclear element analysis for the cost-optimization of npp decommissioning: assessment of raw materials to be used in nuclear-grade concretes

Concrete is a widely used building material that is a mixture of natural raw materials and – to a smaller extent – artificial additives. The raw materials and the mixing ratios determine the structural properties of the concrete, e.g. compressive strength, density, and aging properties. These properties are quantified via Read more…

KFKI is 70 years old

Exactly 70 years ago, on September 1, 1950, the Central Physical Research Institute, KFKI, started operating, which is still one of the most significant strongholds of Hungarian scientific life. The institute has been reorganized several times, adapted to the current circumstances and optimized for the possibilities, divided into more and Read more…
