The objectives of this project activity are: to review the current YMP baseline environment and establish corrosion test environments representative of the range of dry to intermittently wet conditions expected in the drifts as a function of time. to demonstrate the oxidation and corrosion resistance of A588 weathering steel and reference Alloy 22 samples in the representative dry to intermittently dry conditions. to evaluate backfill and design features to improve the thermal performance analyses of the proposed second-generation waste packages using existing models developed at UNR.
