We had been conducted to study hydraulic permeability along fracture intersection by NETBLOCK system using natural rock specimen. Since the permeability of this rock specimen fracture is high, it was suggest that turbulent flow might be occurred in available range of measurement system. In case of turbulent flow, estimated permeability and fracture aperture from test data tend to be low. Therefore we should achieve laminar flow. This study was used the high viscosity liquid instead of water, and test conditions which could attain laminar flow with the rock specimen was examined. The rock specimen is granite rock, has natural Y-type fractures intersection. A solution of Methyl-cellulose is used as high viscosity liquid. Due to the high viscosity liquid, hydraulic head could be measured in the wide range, and high viscosity liquid improved the accuracy of measurement. Laminar flow could be achieved in the rock specimen by the high viscosity liquid over 0.1wt%.

Handling methods and test conditions of hydraulic tests for NETBLOCK system had been examined by using acrylic and/or artificial rock specimen. A natural rock specimen (granite : excavated from Kamaishi mine) with fracture intersection was formed into practicable size for NETBLOCK system. Recently, we conducted a series of hydraulic test, in order to study the influence of fracture intersection by using the natural rock specimen. Hydraulic tests were conducted under several centimeters of head, which could be controlled by improved system because hydraulic permeability of target fractures were high. As a result, 10$$^{-4}$$$$sim$$10$$^{-5}$$(m$$^{2}$$/s) orders of hydraulic transmissivity of target fractures could be measured. A low permeability in the NW direction at the lower fracture was estimated from the heterogeneous head distribution. However, it is also expected that turbulence flow might be occurred under this study condition because fracture permeability is high and flow rate through the fracture is relatively high. In case of turbulence-flow, an estimated hydraulic transmissivity is low. High-viscosity fluid hydraulic test to achieve laminar flow will be needed for correcting an evaluated transmissivity.

A reliability evaluation for radionuclide transport analysis code, MATRICS, used in radionuclide transport analysis in the natural barrier system PA in H12 report has been carried out. Sensitivity analysis to radionuclide transport parameter in MATRICS and analytical solution has been performed, and the results of each analysis have been compared. Additionally sensitivity analysis using Talbot Method, Crump method and Hosono method has been carried out, and the results of each inverse Laplace transform method has been compared. The conclusions obtained from the results of the evaluation are summarized as follows, (1)In case of the infinite matrix diffusion distance, an error among the results of each calculation is maximum about 0.4% in the range of Pe number from 1.0 to 100. And, an error among the results of each calculation is maximum about 5.5% in the range of transmissivity from 1.0$$times$$10$$^{-10}$$ to 1.0$$times$$10$$^{-5}$$(m$$^{2}$$/s). (2)In case of the finite matrix diffusion distance (0.03$$sim$$1.0(m)), an error among the results of each calculation is maximum about 0.7% in the range of Pe number from 1.0 to 100. And, an error among the results of each calculation is maximum about 2.4% in the range of transmissivity from 1.0$$times$$10$$^{-10}$$ to 1.0$$times$$10$$^{-5}$$(m$$^{2}$$/s). 3)By comparing Talbot method with other inverse Laplace transform method, Talbot method is confirmed to give similar results with other inverse Laplace transform method in the range of Pe number from 5.0$$times$$10$$^{-1}$$ to 2.0$$times$$10$$^{3}$$, and that of transmissivity below 1.0$$times$$10$$^{-7}$$(m$$^{2}$$/s). Therefore, it is concluded that the reliability of MATRICS are confirmed by conducting sensitivity analysis in the range of Pe number and transmissivity coefficient used in H12 report.

This paper decribes the results of PA studies considering heterogeneous fracture characteristics, for the purpose of contributing for the performance assessment of the natural barrier system PA in H12 report (The second progress report on research and development for the Geological Disposal of HLW in Japan). In this study, 3-D discrete fracture network mode1 (DFN) and 1-D multiple pathways model is applied for 100m scale of rock block. Although nuclide release rate calculated by DFN are widely distributed among the realizations, it is shown that several tens realizations are enough number to understand the stochastic characteristics of the nuclide release. From the data uncertainty analysis, there are no significant effects for the nuclide retardation in fracture geometry parameters such as fracture radius, density and etc. 1-D multiple pathways model is developed with focusing on the heterogeneity of the transmissivity, which has a large effect to the nuclide retardation effects. The nuclide release rate calculated by using 1-D multiple pathways model approximates to the results of DFN. This result also shows that the relatively large fractures/faults that connects disposal tunnel and downstream faults have an important role for performance assessment in natural barrier system.
