Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation

There are approximately 1.4 million radioactive waste drums buried or stored at sites within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) complex [1,2]. Many of these drums contain cement-solidified liquid wastes. A common method for treating liquid wastes is to mix the liquid waste with cement and pour the waste/cement mixture into steel drums. This process stabilizes the liquid wastes in the hardened cement.
