Executive Summary - THERESA (Coupled thermal-hydrological-mechanical-chemical processes for application in repository safety assessment)

Project ID: 36458


This is the final report of the THERESA project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The report aimed to develop a scientific methodology for evaluating the capabilities of mathematical models and computer codes used in performance assessment and applied to the design, construction, operation, performance and safety assessment, and post-closure monitoring of geological nuclear waste repositories, based on the scientific principles governing coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical and chemical (THMC) processes in geological systems and geo-materials. The report provides an executive summary of the work packages and their respective accomplishements.
