Multiscale reactive transport in natural and engineered barrier systems

Scope of applications

  • Long term predictions of the in situ repository conditions and radionuclide transport.
  • Support of performance assessment studies with data, models and expertise in process understanding.
  • Modeling of laboratory and field experiments, support the planning of experiments.
  • Reactivity of natural and technical barriers.

LES multiscale program

  • Consistent description of transport processes from atomistic to geological scales.
  • Calibration and validation with experimental data, strategic in-house model development.
  • High-performance computing and large-scale experimental facilities at PSI and ETH – domain.
  • Joint development of state-of-the-art chemical solvers and transport codes.
