Failure of a Prestressed Concrete Containment Vessel

SIMULIA's picture

Finite element modeling of prestressed concrete contain-ment vessels (PCCVs, Ref. 1) for nuclear power plants poses special challenges. PCCVs, which are heavily rein-forced structures, are designed to deform beyond the cracking limits of the concrete. Abaqus has been used extensively for analyzing such structures in the nuclear utility industry (Ref. 2) and can be used to assess and improve the performance of these and other similar rein-forced concrete structures.
