This chapter addresses ASME Code Section XI, Subsections IWE and IWL, for nuclear power plant containments. Subsection IWE provides requirements for preservice and inservice examination/inspection, repair/replacement (R/R) activities, and testing of Class MC (metal containment) pressure-retaining components and their integral attachments and R/R activities. It also provides requirements for testing of Class CC (concrete containment) pressure-retaining components and their integral attachments for boiling water reactors (BWRs) and pressurized water reactors (PWRs). Similarly, Subsection IWL provides requirements for preservice and inservice examination/inspection, R/R activities, and testing of the reinforced concrete and post-tensioning systems of Class CC components for BWRs and...
