Numerical simulation of flow and transport in partially saturated, fractured tuff

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The unsaturated, fractured tuff of Yucca Mountain in the Nevada Test Site is one of the target sites for geologic storage of high-level radioactive waste. A modeling study of flow and transport in this geologically complex site is presented. Numerical models of mass and heat flow in conjunction with analytical solutions are being used for sensitivity and pathway analysis studies and to aid in design and interpretation of laboratory and field flow and transport tests in tuff. 11 references, 9 figures, 1 table.
