Building structures required for nuclear installations whose protective function means they are classified as safety-related, have to meet particular construction requirements more stringent than those involved in conventional construction. This book gives a comprehensive overview from approval aspects given by nuclear and construction law, with special attention to the interface between plant and construction engineering, to a building structure classification. All life cycle phases are considered, with the primary focus on execution. Accidental actions on structures, the safety concept and design and fastening systems are exposed to a particular treatment.
Selected chapters of the German concrete yearbook "Beton-Kalender" are now available in English. The new English BetonKalender Series delivers internationally useful engineering expertise and industrial know-how from Germany.
The Beton-Kalender was founded in 1906 in Berlin, and very soon after it has become a "bible" for construction engineers. Its founder Fritz von Emperger (1862-1942) thought that it should support the annual progress of the new building method with ferro-concrete structures "until its tempestuous development would be brought to the end". But, with exception 1945-50 it is published annually until today.
