Nuclear containment protects nuclear island from serious accident, while its compressive bearing capacity remains the key problem to nuclear safety. With reference to one nuclear containment, the special concrete damaged plasticity model in software ABAQUS, this article systematically analyzes influencing rules of compressive bearing capacity and factors such as gravity, steel liner, prestressed tendons etc. The result shows that steel liner and prestressed tendons play key parts in deformation inhibition and the failure mode of nuclear containment, meanwhile prestressed tendons are crucial to improve the compressive bearing capacity.
