The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) Section III Division 3 (commonly referred to as NUPACK) was issued in 1997 to address the containments of nuclear transportation packagings. Previously, Section III consisted of only 2 divisions that address the construction of nuclear facility components: Division 1 for metal construction and Division 2 for concrete construction. Type B packagings have historically been designed to Division 1 standards. This paper discusses the application of NUPACK to the design of a Type B packaging containment vessel.
