International Conference on Nondestructive Evaluation of Concrete in Nuclear Applications (NDE NucCon 2023)


NDE NucCon 2023 will be held in Espoo/Helsinki, Finland from the 25th to the 27th 2023.

While non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of reinforced concrete structures (RCS) in civil engineering applications has a long history, within nuclear industry applications there are many specific challenges to NDE that justify a dedicated international event. This event is open to the owners of nuclear infrastructure (NPPs, waste repositories, etc.), regulators, technical support organizations and other conducting R&D, industry consultants, NDE specialists and academia.

The organizers hope that event helps disseminate NDE solutions to solves real-life challenges applicable on site at utilities /problems. Key aspect covered include NPP structural integrity assessment, retrofitting, ageing management and lifetime extension (for NPP safety, nuclear waste management, decommissioning, etc.) For this reason, we hope to demonstrate NDE applications in our NDE Technology Exhibition.
