Safety Assessment of Radioactive Waste Repositories: Systematic Approaches to Scenario Development

A Report of the NEA Working Group on the Identification and Selection of Scenarios for Performance Assessment of Radioactive Waste Disposal

ISBN : 92-64-13605-3

The analysis of the long-term safety of radioactive waste disposal systems requires the use of mathematical models and scenarios that simulate repository behavior in response to future events. This report describes the approaches that have been developed in order to systematically identify the events and processes likely to affect this behaviour, and to construct and select representative scenarios for consideration in long-term safety studies.
