Description / Abstract:

This document applies to nuclear power plants with containment vessels (inner containment) made of reinforced or prestressed concrete and fitted with a steel liner.

The containment vessel constitutes the structural part of the reactor containment system.

This standard deals with the design of containment vessels, including all penetrations insofar as their function needs to be taken into account to enable the consequences of accidents to be controlled. Containment vessels need to be able to withstand the structural, dynamic and thermal loads (such as forces, internal and external excess pressures and temperatures) without exceeding the leakage rate on which their design is based.

This document also applies to structural elements that affect the structural stability of the containment vessel.
