Leak-Tightness Design of Nuclear Safety Related Liquid-Containing and Buried Concrete Structures

The objective of this paper is to provide a proposal for design of leak‐tight nuclear safety related liquid‐containing and buried structures by meshing the appropriate provisions of design, leak‐tightness and durability of the ACI 350 Code for Concrete Liquid‐Containing Structures with those of the ACI 349 Code for Concrete Nuclear Structures.
