  • Content Description: The repository heat decay data contained within this calculation is specified for both mountain-scale and drift-scale thermal-hydrologic (TH), thermal-hydrologic-mechanical (THM), and thermal-hydrologic-chemical (THC) simulations used in total systems performance assessments (TSPA). Repository thermal output data, and how it decays in time, is required by the models that compute changes to the geologic system as a result of a heat addition. The mountain-scale problem requires a repository-wide waste stream including the total heat output of each fuel type to be emplaced in the repository. These models apply a smeared heat source over a predefined repository footprint area specified in the model. The drift-scale problem requires the heat output of a number of representative (specific) waste package types. These models apply specific waste package heat outputs resolved at the scale of the waste package itself. The results of this calculation will supply details of the repository heat load for each model type. It also provides a schematic of the repository footprint outlines for the License Application Design Selection (LADS), the total repository footprint for TSPA site recommendation (SR) including the contingency area, and the actual loaded repository footprint. This calculation is performed under procedure AP-3.12Q, Rev. 0/ICN 0, Calculations. It is directed by the development plan TDP-MGR-HS-000001 (CRWMS M&O 1999f) which was developed under procedure AP-2.13Q, Rev. 0/ICN 1, Technical Product Development Plans for use in Performance Assessment activities.
