  • THE DEVELOPMENT OF CALCULATING PROCEDURES AND THE EXECUTION OF MODEL CALCULATIONS FOR THE THERMOMECHANICAL ALTERNATE EFFECT OF SALT WITH THE LINING OF DRILL HOLES OR WITH STORED WASTE BLOCKS

Abstract

It was the aim of the studies to develop thermo- mechanic calculating models and procedures for the analysis of tensions and distortions which can be expected in the proximity of stored highly radioactive wastage blocks. With the aid of the ADINA program calculations for the testing and application of the evaluation of the experiments (for instance TV3, simulation experiment, standard probe) were carried out, at the same time investigating the sensitivity of the calculation results with regard to the variation of different parameters of material law, together with the effect of conditions of tension at the edge of the sample. Moreover, model calculations were carried out for the investigation of fields of tension and distortion in mineral salt in the environment of an HAW drilling site. Finally, the thermomechanical stress and distortion of the system salt deposit, surrounding and covering rock where analyzed on to final storage variants for burnt out elements, using simple models.
