Document Type: Journal Paper


Theoretical equilibrium relationships as substantiated by experimental studies are presented here for use in the design of salt cavities. Also included are studies on reduction of cavity volume, development of the plastic zone, and stress redistribution around the cavity as functions of cavity depth, strength of salt, and physico-chemical effects of the waste.
