Title: Power Reactor Development and Prestressed Concrete Reactor Pressure Vessels
Author(s): I. Davidson and T.A. Jager
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 15-28
Keywords: gas-cooled reactors; heat exchanges; nuclear power plants; nuclear reactor containment; nuclear reactors; pressure vessels; prestressed concrete; safety; water-cooled reactors
Abstract:The advantages of prestressed concrete reactor vessels especially in comparison with steel pressure vessels are discussed. The natural economic trend toward large unit sizes of power reactors favors concrete pressure vessel due to possible vessel dismensions in combination with internal pressures, freedom of shape, and increased safety.
