Use of offsite modular SCS (Steel Concrete Structures) for nuclear civil engineering
The conference is dedicated to a European project focused on construction efficiency of nuclear power plant. At this conference, delegates will hear directly from the project team about the experience gained in modelling, design, manufacture, construction and partial dismantling of a full-scale replica of diesel generator building using a modular form of construction.They will also have the opportunity to visit and inspect the demonstration building.
Whilst the demonstration building is typical of one used on nuclear sites, this form of construction has applications in other sectors as an alternative to reinforced concrete; for example, it has proved very successful for the construction of core walls in high rise buildings.
Introduction to SC construction and background to the project
Design of the demonstration building
Use of BIM in the project
Detailing and fabrication of SC modules
Logistics (storage requirements, handling, transportation, etc)
SCHEDULE Project Partners: The Steel Construction Institute, EDF, CEA, EGIS, Bouygues, Peikko and ArcelorMittal (Industeel and OCAS).
The French Nuclear Society is the French knowledge hub for nuclear energy. Created in 1973, the Sfen provides a space where all those who are interested in nuclear energy and its applications can obtain and exchange information.
