Joint ICTP-IAEA Workshop on Modelling for Encapsulated Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) and High Level Waste (HLW) During Long-Term Storage
26 Feb 2024 - 01 Mar 2024 • ICTP, Trieste – hybrid, Italy
Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy / IAEA
This workshop will introduce the influence of ionization radiation from encapsulated radionuclides on waste forms and different modelling approaches for assessing safety under storage or disposal conditions. IAEA is partnering with International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) to deliver a workshop to teach the modelling of ionizing radiation (that arises from radionuclide decay) on the properties of a waste form and use this information to design long-term storage facilities and management procedures.
Basics of interaction of ionizing radiation with cementitious, vitrified and ceramic waste forms; Principles of radiation shielding; Introduction to the transport of ionising radiation; Practical exercises using Mathcad point-kernel method to calculate dose rates and decay heat; Other exercises depending on availability of modelling software.
