The Structural Engineer in the Field of Atomic Energy

1946 saw the birth of Atomic Energy as a new industry. The Author will attempt to describe the part played by the structural engineer during the subsequent impressive years in which he, as a member of a team, has been involved in the design and construction of the buildings which house the nuclear research, prototype, and power reactors, and also their associated plant and equipment. He will briefly discuss the more relevant aspects of some of the process buildings, reactor buildings, of biological shielding for reactors, and of containment buildings. T. C. Waters
