THE BASIC CORROSION MECHANISMS OF HLW GLASSES
During the years 1975 to 1984, the Commission of the European Communities organised and promoted and R&D programme on the testing and evaluation of solidified high level waste forms with the purpose on providing a scientific basis for the management and storage of radioactive waste (indirect action programme, action No 5,/1 -3/). A fair number of materials were tested under a broad variation of experimental data. The Fraunhofer Institut fuer Silicatforschung, Wuerzburg, has undertaken to perform a synoptic evaluation of the above data. The purpose of this evaluation is: - to compile the data from the individual national contributors (as presented in the joint annual reports of the EC) with respect to the materials, or the experimental parameters, or further aspects, and to harmonize them with respect to their presentation, choice of units, etc., - to compare the results to the international state of information, - to elaborate and demonstrate common features of the diverse materials (such as common patterns of the corrosion behaviour), - to check the validity of present models, - to define shortcomings and questions that are still open.
