Abstract

Rock mechanics modelling studies are a key component of geological radioactive waste disposal investigations, in order to build stable repositories and to predict the long-term behaviour of the host medium. Examples of Community research in this field are given about hard rock and salt, particularly: + "admissible thermal loading" in granite and salt; + repository design studies, and modelling of in-situ thermomechanical tests in granite and salt. Demonstration activities and benchmarking of computer codes will contribute to improving the reliability of these analyses.
