Unsaturated flow modeling in high-level nuclear waste repository

Alain GENTY, Gilles BERNARD-MICHEL & Alain GENTY
In the context of high-level nuclear waste repository safety calculations, the modeling of desaturation and saturation processes in low permeable porous media is of first importance. Indeed these processes are strongly coupled with mechanics, inducing host rock confinement properties changes. They also control corrosion and the other geochemical processes responsible for waste canister failure. Above all, desaturation and saturation time scales of the repository components determine the physicochemical behavior of the repository by trapping or...
