Synopsis:

The course is focused on the fundamental principles of contamination and decontamination from the preplanning and operational consideration till the future trends in this field. Part of the lectures is aimed at radioactive contamination with the emphasis corrosion products. Various methods of decontamination (mechanical, chemical, electrochemical, etc.) as well as decontamination of metal constructions, facilities, building surfaces, soils or persons are discussed in details. Attention is paid to the differences between decontamination during operation and decontamination during decommissioning. Basic health and safety requirements and economic aspects of different processes of decontamination are also discussed. Emerging techniques and future trends are briefly mentioned.
