Abstract : Containment design procedures are reviewed through an extensive literature summary that spans 23 years of research from 1970 to 1993. Sixty-four reports are summarized and cross referenced to provide a useful bibliography on the subject. Comments from industry and government agencies are included along with a study of existing analytical methods. These analytical methods have substantiated that system level engine and nacelle evaluations are research areas that require future development and standardization.
