Validation of performance assessment models

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The purpose of model validation in a low-level waste site performance assessment is to increase confidence in predictions of the migration and fate of future releases from the wastes. Unlike the process of computer code verification, model validation is a site-specific process that requires site-specific data. This paper provides an overview of the topic of model validation and describes the general approaches, strategies, and limitations of model validation being considered by various researchers concerned with the subject.
