Abstract
The storage of nuclear waste is still an unresolved problem of the nuclear industry, being geological disposal the most favoured option. Most conceptual designs for the deep geological disposal of nuclear waste envisage placing the canisters containing the waste in horizontal drifts or vertical boreholes. The empty space surrounding the canisters is filled by an engineered barrier often made up of compacted swelling clay. A good understanding of thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) issues is therefore ...
