Numerical analyses are carried out by using the ABAQUS finite element program to predict the ultimate pressure capacity and the failure mode of the BWR Mark III reinforced concrete containment at Kuosheng Nuclear Power Plant, Taiwan, R.O.C. Material nonlinearity such as concrete cracking, tension stiffening, shear retention, concrete plasticity, yielding of reinforcing steel, yielding of liner plate and degradation of material properties as a result of high temperature effects are all simulated with proper constitutive models. Geometric nonlinearity as a result of finite deformation has also been considered. The results of the analysis show that when the reinforced concrete containment fails, extensive cracks take place at the apex of the dome, the intersection of the dome and the cylinder and the lower part of cylinder where there is a discontinuity in the thickness of the containment. In addition, the ultimate pressure capacity of the containment is 23.9 psi and is about 59% higher than the design pressure 15 psi.
