Agelbert NOTE: I'm not an engineer but I happen to know a thing or two about concrete and radionuclides. After 3 to 4 decades, BECAUSE of the FACT that concrete NEVER stops curing, but gets more and more brittle, creating tiny fractures that WILL fill with water, sealed radionuclides WILL, and DID, migrate through to the great (i.e. Pacific Occean) "outdoors" in this concrete "coffin".

There is no structure made of concrete on Planet Earth, and there never has been, that can prevent leaking of radionuclides, regardless of the thickness of the initial pouring of the concrete structure. ONLY routine inspections with new pourings every three decades or so can actually keep the radionuclides from getting out.

They did not do that in the Nuclear "coffin".

I wonder if using the recipe for Roman concrete made of volcanic ash would one more effective. Apparently a recipe by Vitruvius has been discovered. Roman aqueducts are still standing.
