Abstract

In the framework of the Community programme on "Management and Storage of Radioactive Waste", an intercomparison exercise for rock mechanics computer codes for salt (COSA) was carried out. It put together the efforts of 10 teams of Member States, with the British firm ATKINS acting as technical secretariat. The aims of the exercise were as follows: - testing efficiency and user-friendliness of the participating computer codes; - evaluating the numerical accuracy of the codes; - verifying their aptitude to correctly replicate real life phenomena. This paper describes the findings of this project, mainly concerning the third objective, the so-called "validation" of computer codes.
