Three Dimensional Analyses of Combined Gas, Heat and Nuclide Transport in a Repository Considering Thermo-Hydro-Geo- Mechanical Processes


To study the coupled thermo-hydrologic-geomechanical processes and their influence on gas and nuclide transport in a two phase flow through the porous medium, a coupling of the thermo-hydrodynamic code TOUGH2 and the thermo-mechanic code FLAC3D is described and applied to analyze three dimensional gas, heat and nuclide transport in a repository for disposal… (More)
