Abstract

This directory describes computer programs suitable for the assessment of radioactive waste disposal facilities in geological formations. The programs, which are mainly applicable to the post closure analysis of the repository, address combinations of the following topics: nuclide inventory, corrosion, leaching, geochemistry, stress analysis, heat transfer, groundwater flow and risk analysis are not covered. A total of 248 programs are identified, of which 50 are reviewed in detail, 134 in correspondence and meetings with recognized experts. It differs from previous reviews of computer programs for similar topic areas in two main respects. Firstly, the method of obtaining information has resulted in program descriptions of considerable breadth and detail. Secondly, the Directory has concentrated wherever possible on European (instead of North American) codes.
