Among factors affecting the corrosion behavior of carbon steel overpack, in order to consider materials (size) and realistic environmental factors which are difficult to reproduce in the laboratory scale test, engineering scale tests in the underground environment were carried out. A mock-up test of the same scale was also carried out on the ground with the aim of controlling and evaluating factors that govern the corrosion phenomenon. As a result of the test for about 3 years, there was no big difference between the average corrosion amount and the maximum corrosion amount of the simulated overpack base metal and the welded part. On the other hand, unlike the laboratory scale test, localization of corrosion due to the adhesion between the buffer material and the simulated overpack was also confirmed during the initial transient period.
