  • DESIGN AND INSTRUMENTATION OF IN-SITU EXPERIMENTS IN UNDERGROUND LABORATORIES FOR RADIOACTIVE WASTE DISPOSAL - PROCEEDINGS OF A WORKSHOP HELD IN BRUSSELS ON MAY 15-21, 1984.

Abstract

A joint CEC - NEA workshop was held in Brussels on 15- 17th May, 1984 on the theme "Design and Instrumentation of in situ Experiments in Underground Laboratories for Radioactive Waste Disposal". About 100 specialists attended this meeting, in which a review of the current development of such underground facilities was made. Several of them (e.g. the Asse mine, FRG, in salt, or the Stripa mine, Sweden, or the Underground Research Laboratory at Pinawa, Canada, both in granite) are developing testing and instrumentation methodologies, to be transferred later to repository sites; others, such as the Mol excavation in Belgian clay, will also serve to qualify the site in which actual disposal of water could take place later. It appeared from the discussions that underground laboratories are well suited for rock-mechanical experiments and testing of multicomponent systems in a realistic environment (e.g. heater tests). Visits to the Mol facility were arranged for the participants. The proceedings of this workshop are edited jointly by the CEC and the NEA.
