Abstract:Results of elevated temperature tests on a one-quarter scale prestressed concrete reactor vessel (PCRV) model are reported. The long-terms behavior of the PCRV model was evaluated for sustained temperatures up to 140 F (60 C). Major emphasis was placed on the creep of concrete subjected to complex mechanical and thermal loading conditions.
