Containment Performance of Prototypical Reactor Containments Subjected to Severe Accident Conditions
DIANE Publishing, 2000 - 230 pages
Addresses containment design practices and compares the 2 different material types (steel and concrete). Various failure modes are evaluated and computed in previous containment designs. Margin in steel and concrete containment was compared by designing and analyzing a set of surrogate containment. The containment chosen encompass the primary types of containment shapes and construction materials. For compatibility, each containment has an identical internal volume and design pressure and temperature. These containments are designed according to all applicable code requirements for nuclear reactor containment structures.
