Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This document reports the work carried out for the COMPAS project, which looked at the capabilities of various computer codes for the stress analysis of high level nuclear waste containers and overpacks. The report concentrates on codes used by the project partners, but also includes a number of the major commercial finite element codes. The report falls into two parts. The first part describes the capabilities of the codes. This includes details of the solution methods used in the codes, the types of analysis which they can carry out and the interfacing with pre- and post- processing packages. This is the more comprehensive section of the report. The second part looks at the performance of those codes used by the project partners and how they perform in typical test problems.
