SAFE Barriers - A Systems Approach to Engineered Barriers
Discrete network of transport elements.
SAFE Barriers is a joint project between the Universities of Strathclyde (lead), Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham and Oxford and the British Geological Survey funded by EPSRC and Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).
At the University of Glasgow, Peter Grassl, Simon Wheeler and Ignatios Athanasiadis are developing discrete modelling approaches to describe numerically the response of bentonite at the pore scale. Of particular interest are the interaction of water transport, heat transfer and mechanical response.
