Structural integrity & safety of nuclear power plants is critical, especially due to the nature of fuel it uses. The radioactive fuel can spread out and contaminate a vast geographical area in a very short period of time in case of any structural deterioration and damage in the plant’s structure.
The effects are long term and almost impossible to eradicate. Thus, nuclear power plant monitoring using a combination of techniques such as geotechnical instrumentation, non-contact deformation survey including aerial survey through drone is very essential.
Geotechnical sensors used in nuclear power plant monitoring includes:
