Abstract
This paper describes the implementation of the Bodner–Partom model for the analysis of copper corrosion barrier in canisters containing spent nuclear fuel. The Bonder–Partom constitutive model implemented in CODE_BRIGHT finite element code is compared with experimental results for validation and with the Stealth finite difference code for verification. Deep geological disposal is the most reliable alternative for the spent nuclear fuel storage. This disposal is based on the multiple barriers...
