Abstract

This report reviews work carried out between January 1983 and December 1984 for the CEC/DOE contract "Mathematical Modelling of Fracture Hydrology" which forms part of the CEC Mirage project. It describes the development and use of a variety of mathematical models for the flow of water and transport of radionuclides in flowing groundwater. These models have an important role to play in assessing the long-term safety of radioactive waste burial, and in the planning and interpretation of associated experiments. The work is reported under five headings, namely 1) Statistical fracture network building. 2) Continuum models of flow and transport. 3) Simplified models. 4) Analysis of laboratory experiments. 5) Analysis of field experience.
