In Chapter 14, John D. Stevenson discusses the Code for concrete reactor vessels and containments. Requirements for concrete reactor vessel construction are contained in Subsection CB of Section III, Division 2. However, this Subsection of the Code is no longer being actively maintained. Requirements for concrete containment construction are contained in Subsection CC of Section III, Division 2.

John distinguishes between the confinements and the containments aspects of construction, and he discusses the containments addressed by the Code that are, in fact, secondary containments and act as final barriers to radioactive releases to the environment. John deals with the interface...
