Abstract:

The size and pressure limitations of concrete vessels, as applied to potential hydrospace simulation, are investigated. It is shown that within the range of practical interest, there is essentially no size limitation. Current concrete technology permits design pressures of the order of 3000 psi, possibly 3500 psi. It is also shown that without development of new technology, the concrete vessel concept is not an attractive design solution for internal pressures much above those levels. Author
