Abstract

The development of inhomogeneities during the pervasive flow of water through the Nirex reference vault backfill (NRVB) has been studied. The buffering of the chemistry in groundwater flowing in a crack has been studied using models developed under this programme. These models include a simplified analytical solution, which allows the influence of cracks on the longer term behaviour of the repository chemistry which has been implemented as a computer code denoted CHEQFRAC and the CRACK2 code which simulates the development of the reaction layers.
