Contract Number: Fp6-036458. Project Description & Status Theresa Coupled Thermal-Hydrological-Mechanical- Chemical Processes For Application In Repository Safety Assessment

Funded under: FP6-EURATOM

Abstract

This project aims to develop a scientific methodology for evaluating the capabilities of mathematical models and computer codes used in Performance Assessment (PA - using process level models) or Total System Performance Assessment (TSPA - mostly using simplified PA models) and applied to the design, construction, operation, performance and safety assessment, and post-closure monitoring of geological nuclear waste repositories, based on the scientific principles governing coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical and chemical (THMC) processes in geological systems and geo-materials.
