Thermochemical Database (TDB) Project

Phase V

The fifth phase of the TDB project started in April 2014 for a duration of four years.

The goal, objectives and methodology remain unchanged: to provide access to a comprehensive, internally consistent, internationally recognised and quality-assured chemical thermodynamic database of selected chemical elements. This database should meet the specialised modelling requirements for safety assessments of radioactive waste disposal systems.

A first priority of TDB V will be:

The programme of work also includes an exploratory stage for the preparation of a state-of-the-art report on the thermochemical extrapolation of data to non-standard state temperatures.
