Material usage and behaviour
Our expertise and specialized knowledge with respect to the evaluation of materials and their behavior includes the following applications:
- Product inspection and determination of properties (mechanical parameters, leaching behavior, thermal loading especially for waste materials);
- Use and development of special materials (e.g. polysiloxan) for long-term safe enclosure of waste materials;
- Measurement and assessment of long-term behavior of barriers used in final repositories (corrosion and leaching behavior);
- Studies of heat-induced processes and their effect on barrier materials in the proximity of permanently stored waste materials.
