Abstract

Disposal of high level radioactive waste in deep geological formations is, at present, the most promising method to isolate this waste from man and his environment. The Commission of the European Communities implements a R & D Programme with a view to, among others, assess the safety of this approach. The paper presents some interesting results gained in the framework of this programme about (a) the measurement and modelling of mechanical behaviour of rock formations, and (b) the long- term evolution of these formations.
