An integrity investigation was carried out for the JMTR Concrete Structure (Vent Stack, Trench, Canal Building, Filter Bank), which was the concrete structure and would be used for the long-term after JMTR restart, before the repair or replacement work of the JMTR related facilities that had begun in FY2007. In the integrity investigation, the concrete surface deterioration, the rebound number (nondestructive strength test), compressive strength using drilled concrete core test piece, the static modules of elasticity, the carbonation depth, the reinforced bar corrosion and the chloride ion content were investigated respectively and the integrity of concrete was confirmed. After the investigation, repair works such as re-painting of the Vent Stack and Trench were carried out from the viewpoint of prevention of flaking off, floating of the painting and the thinning due to the investigation results. In order to use the JMTR concrete structure continuously for long-term, it is important for maintaining the integrity of a concrete structure by the periodical maintenance and the repairing work including the building outer-wall surface painting that has been conducted up to now.
