Abstract [en]

The main objective of this study was to investigate the influence of stresses on radioactive nuclide transport in fractured rocks, based on Discrete Element Method (DEM) and a particle tracking approach. Matrix diffusion was also considered in the transport simulation. The results show that stresses not only influence the particle residence time in fracture network, but also change the particle transport paths significantly.
