Abstract

Over the past 18 months the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has conducted an independent analysis of rockfall in the emplacement drifts in the proposed Yucca Mountain repository. This paper addresses one aspect of this work, the occurrences of rockfall due to thermal loading, seismic loading, and time. The consequences of rockfall on repository performance are addressed in other papers by the EPRI team. Overall, our results are in general agreement with the most recent Drift Degradation AMR [1].
