Engineering construction research. Researcher with an X-ray of a welded metal joint. This has been taken to check for any weaknesses in the joint. It is part of the process for constructing a nuclear power plant. Structures in nuclear power plants must meet high standards of construction quality, since ruptures of joints could allow radioactive material to leak into the surrounding environment. Photographed at the Framatome ANP research laboratories at Chalon/Saint Marcel, France.
