Code for Concrete Containments


This Chapter describes the bases and provisions of the Code for Concrete Containments. It describes the concrete containment general environment, types of existing containments, future containment configurations, and background development including the regulatory bases of concrete containment construction code requirements. The description covers sequentially the following topics: Introduction, Concrete Reactor Containments, Types of Containments, Future Containments, Regulatory Bases for the Code Development, Background Development of the Code, Reinforced Concrete Containment Behavior, Containment Design Analysis and Related Testing, Code Design Requirements, Fabrication and Construction, Construction Testing and Examination, Containment Structural Integrity Testing, Containment Overpressure Protection, Stamping and Reports, Containment Structure and Aircraft Impact, Containment and Severe Accident Considerations, Other Relevant Information, Summary and Conclusion.
