JAEA Reports

Collection of measurement data in 2013 fiscal year at the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory Project

Aoyagi, Kazuhei; Kawate, Satoshi

JAEA-Data/Code 2015-017, 118 Pages, 2015/12


In the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory (URL) Project, construction of the Ventilation Shaft, the East and West Access Shafts and the drifts has been conducted as a phase II research. In the research, observation of the lithofacies and fractures, and in-situ tests are conducted in each face. In addition, measuring instruments such as tunnel lining concrete stress meter and extensometer are installed in particular face for the purpose of the validation of the results of predictive analysis, conducted in phase I. This report summarizes the measurements data acquired at the 350 m Gallery and the ventilation shaft.

Annual Waste Management Symposium (WM 2015), Vol.5, p.3631 - 3645, 2015/00

JAEA has promoted R&D on HLW geological disposal technology. JAEA launched the Mizunami and the Horonobe URL Projects to cover the diversity of geological environments in Japan. The Mizunami URL Project is a geoscientific research project in the crystalline rock environment. The Horonobe URL Project consists of geoscientific studies and R&D on geological disposal technology in the sedimentary rock environment. Both URL projects have been planned to proceed in three overlapping phases, Surface-based investigation Phase, Construction Phase and Operation Phase. Currently, the construction of research galleries in both of the Mizunami and the Horonobe URLs has been completed to 500 m and 350 m depths, respectively. JAEA will promote R&D activities in Phase III including study of the long-term evolution of the geological environment, and contribute to international cooperation, development of human resources and communication amongst stakeholders through both URL projects.
