Presentation and use of a reactive transport code in porous media



Presentation and use of a reactive transport code in porous media



Physics and Chemistry of the Earth 32(1-7): 507-517



The safety assessment of nuclear waste disposals requires an accurate prediction of the radionuclides and chemical species migration through engineered barriers and geological media. It is therefore necessary to develop and assess qualified and validated tools which integrate both the transport mechanisms through the geological media and the chemical mechanisms governing the mobility of radionuclides. Such a reactive transport simulation tool has been developed in the context of the numerical software platform ALLIANCES. Different component codes are available: PHREEQC and CHESS for the chemical part, CAST3M, MT3D and TRACES for the transport part. A coupling scheme has already been implemented, qualified and validated on numerous configurations involving aqueous speciation, dissolution-precipitation, sorption and surface complexation. Presently, the reactive transport numerical tool is used to simulate realistic configurations. This paper presents two of such applications: the migration of uranium in a soil with various redox conditions and the modelling of clay-cement interactions.
