Abstract

The use of prestressed concrete reactor vessels (PCRVs) for LMFBR containment creates a need for analytical methods for treating the transient response of such structures, for LMFBR containments must be capable of sustaining the dynamic effects which arise in a hypothetical core disruptive accident (HCDA). For the purpose of illustrating the applicability of these techniques and the validity of the models for concrete and the prestressing tendons, several example solutions are presented and compared with experimental results. These sample problems range from simply supported beams to small scale models of PCRV's.
