Preliminary Characterization of Materials for a Reactive Transport Model Validation Experiment
The geochemical properties of a porous sand and several tracers (Ni, Br, and Li) have been characterized for use in a caisson experiment designed to validate sorption models used in models...

Simulation of Fracture Flow to the Kamaishi Validation Drift
The Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC) has developed an in-situ test facility in the Kamaishi Mine to resolve technical issues in disposal of radioactive wastes...

Factors Affecting Performance of Vitrified Wasteforms
The acceptability and usefulness of mathematical models for predicting the performance of vitrified wasteforms can be enhanced by their validation using laboratory data generated under...

Stochastic Modelling of Groundwater Flow at the WIPP Site
A stochastic approach to modelling the groundwater flow in the vicinity of the WIPP site in New Mexico is described. A geostatistical model of the transmissivity of the Culebra dolomite...

Model Structure Validation in Groundwater Modeling
Structure equivalence models (SEM), a new concept in groundwater modeling, have been developed to assist in groundwater planning and management. Using SEM, the engineer is able to satisfy...

Validation of SHRP Performance Graded Binder Specifications Using Field Simulation Testing Equipment
The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) was initiated to improve the effectiveness of laboratory test methods in predicting field performance. European highway agencies are using...

Early Field Experience with SUPERPAVE
Specific pavement studies of newly constructed, reconstructed or rehabilitated (resurfaced) pavement sections were used to provide an estimate of the relative influence of key pavement...
