Bounding analysis of uplift and erosion scenario for an HLW repository

In Japan, uplift and erosion scenarios must be analysed since this natural phenomena would be inevitable at most sites in Japan. It's increasingly important to enhance the confidence of the assessment for the uplift and erosion scenarios, as no assessment cut-off times have yet been defined. In this context, this study carried out bounding analysis to find out parameter conditions to satisfy hypothetical dose criteria. The results show that there are no cases that satisfy 10 microSv/y. However, all cases are below 300 microSv/y. The discussion also implies that to accelerate the release from the EBS for minimising the dose in later phase is inadequate and ineffective at all, due to multiple barriers and multiple safety functions. In principal, the influence of uplift and erosion should be reduced by appropriate site selection and design as much as possible to ensure the sufficient nuclides decay while the repository is staying at the deep underground.
