Addresses containment design practices & compares the two different material types (steel & concrete). Various failure modes are evaluated & computed in previous containment designs. Margin in steel & concrete containment was compared by designing & analyzing a set of surrogate containment. The containment chosen encompass the primary types of containment shapes & construction materials. For compatibility, each containment has an identical internal volume & design pressure & temperature. These containments are designed according to all applicable code requirements for nuclear reactor containme
