The French National Waste Management Agency (Andra) envisages the safe disposal of High-Level Waste Intermediate-Level Long-Lived Waste through deep geological storage (multibarrier). Waste storage is based on the Callovo-Oxfordian formation (CallOx). It has been updated a reactive transport model accounting for the chemical and thermal evolution of a HLW cell. Improvements are a better ...

iCP (Nardi et al, 2014) is a software that couples two standalone simulation programs: COMSOL Multiphysics® and PHREEQC (Parkhurst & Appelo, 2013). The tool is ideal for applying multiphysics and geochemistry in Earth Sciences. Flexibility of the two coupled codes result in an extensive list of modelling areas, offering good opportunities for R+D. The iCP 1.0 is the version of the ...

The use of ventilated facades may reduce the cooling and heating energy demands of the building. Double-skin facades (DSFs) belong to the wider group of ventilated facades and currently represent one of the most interesting and studied facade systems. The purpose of this study is to investigate the thermal behaviour and performance of a DSF being designed for a real project in the Middle East ...

The percolation of water into soil can be modeled considering Darcy's Law in laminar flow. In this manner the key property is the coefficient of hydraulic conductivity. Its determination can be made through laboratory or field testing. One of the most known field tests used for determination of this property is the Slug Test. This test consists of a perforated well in the ground where a known ...

This paper presents the design and simulation of micromixer for Lab-On-Chip (LOC) applications. There are two types of micromixers: one is an active micromixer and another one is a passive micromixer. This paper investigates microfluidic flow characterization and mixing rate of two fluids in a micro- channel. Understanding the microfluidic flow at the micro channel is a develop methods of mixing ...

In response to continued miniaturization and increased multi-functionality of electronic circuits, the number of integrated circuit (IC) packages on the circuit board continues to increase. As a consequence the operating power density increases and significant increases in the operating temperature of devices result. To maintain operation and long term performance device temperature must be ...

Schistosoma mansoni parasites affect million people worldwide. The intensity of the infection can be evaluated by the number of eggs present in the stool of an infected individual. The application of the traditional methods has been regarded as impractical in developing areas and there is a continuous search for new techniques. In face of this scenario, a new method of diagnosis was explored in ...

Iodine absorber is a widely used purification equipment for purifying air in a nuclear power plant. In China, the common type is Ⅱ iodine absorber. Impregnated activated carbon is the main absorber within the iodine absorber. Because of the decays exothermic of radioactive iodine, heat is generated in the adsorption process. Carbon is a combustible material. Moreover, air is always supplied in ...
