- The purpose of this analysis is to calculate the thermal response of the repository host rock and near-field surface temperatures due to the heat produced by drift-emplaced waste packages (WPs). The main objective of the evaluation is to predict time-dependent WP surface temperatures for later use as boundary conditions for detailed thermal evaluations of large and small Multi-Purpose Canisters (MPCs), defense high-level waste (DHLW), and uncanistered spent fuel (UCF) waste package conceptual designs. This analysis will also provide a parametric evaluation of the thermal effects of thermal loading and various emplacement parameters to determine what parameters are important to repository thermal behavior.
