Effect of fractures on repository dryout

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Calculations of water flow through Yucca Mountain show significant dryout and water perching in the vicinity of the proposed nuclear waste repository. These calculations also show that the extent of the dryout and perched water zones is a strong function of the material characteristics which are used to represent the fracture zones. The results show that for 100 {mu}m fracture case appreciable dryout and perched regions exist. When 1 {mu}m fractures are used no dryout or perched regions are calculated.
