TRIAL STORAGE OF HIGH LEVEL WASTE CYLINDERS IN THE ASSE-II SALT MINE
The report covers the contract period 1976 - 1977 (plus some extension into 1978), it is chiefly concerned with trial planning, examination of the concepts, procurement and testing of trial components: Experiments on temperature distribution and measurements of convergence as well as simulation experiments in cased and uncased boreholes; development of a standard probe for studies of thermally induced borehole convergence; convergence measurements (galleries and boreholes) in temperature experiments; efforts at determining absolute stress in rocks; rheological examinations especially of halite and of Carnallite; first investigations of processes in brines and corrosion of container materials; further work on the development of computer programmes to examine heat generation in wastes - salt; some work on development of computer codes for stability behaviour of rocks; also: development of a shielding container for highly radioactive glass blocks; and of an integrated disposal and retrieval system (high level glass cylinders); and development, in its essential parts, of a monitoring system in the Asse II salt mine.
