ACES (towards improved Assessment of safety performance for long-term operation of nuclear Civil Engineering Structures) is an EURATOM funded research project with a main objective to advance the assessment of safety performance of civil engineering structures by solving scientific and technological problems that currently hinder the safe and long-term operation of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) reliant on safety-critical concrete infrastructure. The ACES Work Package WP4 focus on research related to creep and shrinkage, that aims to improve the modelling capability for drying and delayed strains of Concrete Containment Buildings (CCBs) in operational and accidental condition. In this paper, the main progress made during the first year of the project is presented.
