Putting the NEW in Nuclear Power Plants
The materials that go into the construction of nuclear power plants require as close scrutiny and certification as the people working on and in them.
CTLGroup is a consulting firm with experts in the fields of structural engineering and materials science. The company operates one of North America's largest scientific laboratories dedicated to characterizing and understanding the performance of construction materials.
Tim Tonyan, Vice President & Manager, Materials Consulting at CTLGroup, and Chair of the Materials & Products Practice Group, and Carlton Olson, Principal & Group Manager, Structural & Architectural Evaluation, discussed critical materials testing and structural evaluation services offered by the firm to facility owners that wish to extend service life in this SME publication.
