This paper discusses criteria developed to qualify glovebox windows to maintain confinement under normal, accident, and design basis natural phenomena conditions. Specialized qualification methods include equivalent panel and gasket modeling techniques, membrane stress evaluation methods, panel stress acceptance criteria, ligament efficiency applications at perforations, and gasket strain acceptance criteria.
