Other Subsections and Divisions
Subsection NE addresses items which are intended to conform to the requirements for Class MC construction.
Subsection NF addresses the supports which are intended to conform to the requirements for Classes 1, 2, 3, and MC construction.
Subsection NG addresses structures which are designed to provide direct support or restraint of the core (fuel & blanket assemblies) within the reactor pressure vessel.
Subsection NH addresses Class 1 components, parts, and appurtenances which are expected to function even when metal temperatures exceed those covered by the rules and stress limits of Subsection NB and Tables 2A, 2B, and 4 of Section II, Part D, Subpart 1.
Division 2 addresses concrete containment structures, pre-stressed or reinforced. These requirements are applicable only to those components that are designed to provide a pressure retaining or containing barrier.
Division 3 addresses the design and construction of the containment system of a nuclear spent fuel or high level radioactive waste transport packaging.
The all-new Division 5 provides construction rules for high-temperature reactors, including both high-temperature, gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs) and liquid-metal reactors (LMRs).
