Periodic Activity Report - TIMODAZ (Thermal Impact on the Damaged Zone Around a Radioactive Waste Disposal in Clay Host Rocks)

Project ID: 36449


This is the periodic report of the TIMODAZ project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The TIMODAZ project studied the thermo-hydro-mechanical and chemical (THMC) processes occurring around a repository. It focused on the study of the combined effect of the EDZ and the thermal impact on the repository host rock. The influence of the temperature increase on the EDZ evolution as well as the possible additional damage created by the thermal load was investigated. According to the report the knowledge gained within the TIMODAZ project will allow to assess the significance of the thermal damaged zone (TDZ) in the safety case for disposal in clay host rock and to provide direct feedback to repository design teams.
