Parallel Simulation of T-M Processes in Underground Repository of Spent Nuclear Fuel
In the background of our interest in the modelling of thermo-mechanical phenomena is its relevancy to the assessment of underground repositories of nuclear waste – a highly urgent topic worldwide, with great impact on the future of nuclear power utilization. In this context, one of the most internationally recognised project is the Äspö Prototype Repository in Sweden, which is a full-scale experimental realisation of the KBS-3 concept of spent nuclear fuel repository , where modelling of phenomena such as heat transfer, moisture migration, solute transport and stress/strain development can be verified.
