DISCRETE EVENT SIMULATION OF NUCLEAR WASTE TRANSPORT
IN GEOLOGIC SITES SUBJECT TO DISRUPTIVE EVENTS
Sudhir Aggarwal, Stephen Ryland, and Roxy Peck
This report outlines a methodology to study the effects of
disruptive events on nuclear waste material in "stable" geologic
sites. The methodology is based upon developing a discrete events
model that can be simulated on the computer. This methodology
allows a natural development of simulation models that use com-
puter resources in an efficient manner. Accurate modeling in this
area depends in large part upon accurate modeling of ion transport
behavior in the storage media. Unfortunately, developments in
this area are not at a stage where there is any consensus on
proper models for such transport. Consequently, our work is
directed primarily towards showing how disruptive events can be
properly incorporated in such a model, rather than as a predictive
tool at this stage. When and if proper geologic parameters can
be determined, then it would be possible to use this as a pre-
dictive model. In the next section, we discuss our assumptions
and their bases, and describe the mathematical and computer model
that we have developed.
1. NATURE OF THE GEOLOGIC PROBLEM
The storage of nuclear waste material generated as a bipro-
duct of nuclear power reactors is now recognized as one of the
