The reinforcing steel yield strength can be affected by elevated temperature exposure, but the temperatures to cause an affect are significantly higher (except under unusual conditions) than would be experienced by a NPP concrete structure. 34] indicate that for temperatures up to ~200°C, the yield strength is reduced by 10% or less, and at 500°C it falls to about 50% its reference room temperature value. Hot-rolled steels tend to resist the effects of temperature better than cold drawn or twisted steel.

Settlement All structures have a tendency to settle during construction and early life. , cracking). The amount of settlement is dependent on the physical properties of the foundation material at the site, which may range from bedrock (minimal settlement expected) to compacted soil (some settlement expected), and on quality control of foundation construction, including piling. Settlement is considered in the design of the containment and is not expected to be significant. When the containment is sited on soils, the potential for settlement is acknowledged and monitoring programmes are implemented to confirm that design criteria are met.
