In many countries, disposal of spent fuel and other radioactive wastes in underground repositories is considered. An important part of the design and performance assessment of the disposal system is to consider the impact of T-H-M-C coupling on rock mass stability, groundwater flow, external stress, heat transfer and contaminant transport.
The Department of Land and Water Resources Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, is organizing a Conference on Coupled T-H-M-C Processes and Modelling of Geosystems with the intention of bringing together experts and students working on diverse aspects and applications of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical & chemical (T-H-M-C) processes and modelling in geological systems and materials.
