An Overview of the Round-Robin Analysis of the 1:6-Scale Reinforced Concrete Containment Model

by D. B. Clauss, Sandia Natl Lab, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Design, Analysis and Testing


The results of nonlinear structural analyses of a 1:6-scale reinforced concrete model, which were independently conducted by ten different organizations, are briefly described and compared with the results of a pressure test to failure. The emphasis is primarily on the undisturbed response of the shell, i.e., the effect of penetrations is not considered.
