  • Assessment of uncertainty in discrete fracture network modeling using probabilistic distribution method

    There have been widespread concerns about solute transport problems in fractured media, e.g. the disposal of high-level radioactive waste in geological fractured rocks. Numerical simulation of particle tracking is gradually being employed to address these issues. Traditional predictions of radioactive waste transport using discrete fracture network (DFN) models often consider one particular ...

  • Safe-Series multi instrument training

    The STS Safe-Series for the first time allows users to create diverse training environments where survey meters and dosimeters can be integrated into the same scenario and respond to the same simulated source. Due to the realistic field pattern and attenuation and shielding characteristics of the simulated radiation field trainees can quickly learn the principles of radiation safety and see real ...

  • Comparative assessment of ultimate disposal facilities for carbon dioxide and radioactive waste: overview and synthesis

    The world community is seeking to move towards cleaner sources of energy for electricity generation to protect the environment. In addition to renewables, nuclear power and fossil fuel plants with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) are potential clean energy sources, if their wastes, i.e., radioactive material and CO2, are ...

  • Comparison of monitoring programmes of ultimate disposal facilities for radioactive waste and carbon dioxide

    Reliable and cost–effective monitoring is an important part of making geological repositories safe, effective, and acceptable for radioactive waste disposal and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. The major objectives of monitoring should include the evolution of disposal systems compared to the baseline data of the undisturbed site, as well as the validation of the assumptions and ...

  • Lysimetric studies for modelling radioactive contaminant transport in soils

    To assess the movement of contaminants in the soil mass surrounded by near/subsurface waste repository, researchers have developed several mathematical and numerical modelling techniques. However, most of these techniques consider remolded state of soil mass, which fail to reproduce exact in situ conditions and also have used inactive salts as model contaminants. Hence, in order to model ...

  • The lack of acute effect of low–to–moderate–dose ionising radiation on endothelial proteome

    Epidemiological studies have shown that moderate and low radiation doses to the heart area may result in an increase in cardiovascular mortality. It has been suggested that cardiovascular endothelium could be one of the targets for the ionising radiation–induced heart injury. We have used human endothelial cells as an in vitro model to study immediate effects of ionising radiation on endothelium. ...
