The mission of this committee is to develop, review, and maintain requirements in ASME BPVC Section III, Division 2 (ACI Standard 359) governing the design and construction of concrete containments with metallic liners. This committee is also responsible for requirements governing sub-activities of material selection, material qualification, design, fabrication, examination, inspection, and testing of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete containments for nuclear power plants. This committee will interpret the requirements under its purview when questions requiring clarification arise and will periodically update the Code to maintain consistency with the requirements of other industry codes and standards, as applicable.
