The construction and testing of a model of a prestressed concrete containment structure is described. The test structure consisted of a reinforced concrete base, cylindrical wall, ring beam and dome built of prestressed concrete with construction details patterned after the Canadian CANDU reactor containment. The overall height above the base was 12 ft‐6 in. (3,810 mm), and the outer diameter was 10 ft‐6 in. (3,200 mm). Internal pressure was obtained using water, and leakage was prevented by…
