Analyses on the long-term deformation of gas storage caverns in a salt dome were carried out using the 3D-FEM. The stresses in salt rock surrounding a cavern are lower than those in the virgin ground and with distribution as hydrostatical pressure surrounding a pumping well.The surplus storage capability of one of the caverns will remain 29.1% of the original value after 80 designed operation years. Further researches show that the above mentioned value will be greater when the cavern space is… 
Self-Sealing Behavior of High Level Waste Repository in Rock Salt Formation
Numerical creep analyses on rock salt surrounding repository for high level waste (HLW) are carried out using the software FLAC3D. The results show that the cavity tends to be self-sealed. After near
