Within the framework of the reorientation of the Chair of Repository Safety (ELS), research topics relevant to repositories are being worked on. These are questions on safety and verification concepts of repository systems, operation, emplacement and closure concepts for repositories or the monitoring of interim and final repositories.
Our team in the research field "Nuclear Simulation" deals with the development and application of high-dimensional computer codes for simulating of nuclear processes in the complex field of nuclear fuel cycle, the reactor and safety technology.
The decommissioning of nuclear powerplants and the disposal of radioactive waste is a long-term task for the future. Here, the team "Nuclear waste disposal and decommissioning" deals with issues relating to this topic.
