Abstract

A service life management system, ServiceMan, for concrete structures in Finnish nuclear power plants was developed in cooperation with the Finnish nuclear power companies. The system is predictive, probabilistic and life-cycle based. It takes into account several aspects of structural lifetime quality, such as performance, condition, financial costs and environmental impacts. By the service life management system the accepted structural performance and uninterrupted service of concrete structures can be ensured during the planned operating lifetime of the Finnish nuclear power plants.
