Technical Report NTB 89-24


The Stripa Project is organised as an autonomous project of the Nuclear Energy Agency of the OECD. Over the time period 1986 – 1991 (Phase 3 of the Project), an international cooperative programme of investigations is being carried out in an underground rock laboratory in Sweden. Building on experience gained in Phases 1 and 2, the following research will be carried out:

  • Application of various site characterisation techniques and analysis methods with a view to predicting and validating groundwater flow and nuclide transport in an unexplored volume of Stripa granite
  • Verification of the use of different materials and techniques for sealing water-bearing fractures in the Stripa granite

Switzerland is represented in the Stripa project by Nagra and the Stripa Project technical reports appear in the Nagra NTB series.
