Of the many persons listed above, both within and without the Labo-
ratory, we would like to express particular thanks to M. I. Lundin, who
coordinated the Bechtel Corporation subcontract, and to H. B. Piper who,
in addition to his contributions as an author, coordinated the review of
all the chapters and prepared the index.
In order to make the greatest possible use of this compilation, read-
ers should familiarize themselves with Chapter 1, which, in addition to
providing essential background material, contains a section specifically
designated "Guide to the Use of this Report." In addition, an extensive
index is available.
It will be appreciated that a compilation of this type - particularly
the first of its kind - on a relatively new subject and one upon which
there is considerable research and development will be subject to frequent
evaluation and change, at least until a much higher plateau of knowledge
and experience is attained. Thus the editors are aware of the limited
timeliness of the material herein and anticipate, circumstances permit-
ting, that the material will be revised every two or three years. Toward
that end, this document is being distributed in a loose-leaf binder, and
recipients wishing to receive revisions of this material are asked to ad-
vise the editor of any changes in address.
The editors also wish to acknowledge the support, encouragement, and
constructive criticism of the sponsors within the AEC Division of Reactor
Development, particularly J. A. Lieberman, Assistant Director for Nuclear
Safety; S. A. Szawlewicz, Chief, Research and Development Branch; and
R. N. Newton, Research and Development Branch, without whom this work
would not have been possible. However, the reader is cautioned not to
regard the inclusion of any information here as giving that information
any official sanction as far as the AEC Division of Compliance or Division
of Reactor Licensing is concerned. This report does no more than reflect
the current state of the art to the satisfaction of the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory and the Bechtel Corporation. Furthermore, it cannot anticipate
what changes in containment technology may evolve from research and devel-
opment or the official attitudes regarding the adequacy of containment
provisions for a particular application that may evolve from the continuing
deliberation of either the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards or
the Division of Reactor Licensing.
