Final Report, Module 1 - ESDRED (Engineering Studies and Demonstrations of Repository Designs)



This is a periodic report of the ESDRED project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). This report covers the accomplishments of module 1 which was principally dedicated to the construction and/or emplacement, in a horizontal configuration, of the buffer around a disposed high-level waste package. In addition, module 1 aimed to test the performance of seals (saturation rate and gas permeability) and certain seal installation aspects, and to advance the state-of-the-art of the application of non-intrusive monitoring techniques in geological repositories.
