Fibre Nervous Sensing Systems (FINESSE)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2020,

The unprecedented properties of optical fibres make them ideal to be implemented as 'artificial nervous systems', enabling any tool or structure to become a sensitive and smart object. Conventional optical fibres are small, low-cost and can be seamlessly integrated in materials, in engineering structures and in the environment. By exploiting the most advanced light-matter interactions, these tiny ...

Towards a Joint Programming on Radioactive Waste Disposal (JOPRAD)

Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Nov 30, 2017,

The goal of this project is to prepare the setting up of a “Joint Programming on Radioactive Waste Disposal” that would be established to coordinate at the European level, national research programmes and the associated research and development (R&D) activities on geological disposal for high activity long lived radioactive waste. This action includes reviewing of all strategic aspects linked to a ...

Processes of Cation Migration in Clayrocks (CATCLAY)

Start date: Jun 1, 2010, End date: May 31, 2014,

The overall objective of CatClay is to provide a scientifically well grounded answer to the following question: Can the migration of actinides and other strongly sorbing radionuclides in clayrock be predicted by coupling models of (i) their sorption equilibria on representative clay minerals and (ii) the diffusion-driven mass transport of radionuclide sorbed and dissolved species in compacted mass ...

Long-term performance of Engineered Barrier Systems (EBS) (PEBS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2010, End date: Feb 28, 2014,

The main aim of the project PEBS (Long-term Performance of the Engineered Barrier System) is to evaluate the sealing and barrier performance of the EBS with time, through development of a comprehensive approach involving experiments, model development and consideration of the potential impacts on long-term safety functions. The experiments and models cover the full range of conditions from initial ...

Fate of Repository Gases (FORGE)

Start date: Feb 1, 2009, End date: Sep 30, 2013,

"The multiple barrier concept is the cornerstone of all proposed schemes for underground disposal of radioactive wastes. The concept invokes a series of barriers, both engineered and natural, between the waste and the surface. Achieving this concept is the primary objective of all disposal programmes, from site appraisal and characterisation to repository design and construction. However, the perf ...

"Gas-Cooled Reactors (GCR), RBMK and some Material Test Reactors (MTR) make use of graphite as moderator of the fuel, structures of the core and/or thermal columns. During operation, the graphite and other carbonaceous materials like carbon brick, pyrocarbon and silicon carbide coatings are contaminated by fission products and neutron activation. These irradiated carbonaceous wastes are problemati ...

REDOX PHENOMENA CONTROLLING SYSTEMS (RECOSY)

Start date: Apr 1, 2008, End date: Mar 31, 2012,

Main objectives of ReCosy are the sound understanding of redox phenomena controlling the long-term release/retention of radionuclides in nuclear waste disposal and providing tools to apply the results to Performance Assessment/Safety Case. Although redox is not a new geochemical problem, different questions are still not resolved and thus raised by implementers and scientists. From a top-down appr ...
