    analyses work for waste package performance assessment (PA) that was carried out during the late s. Uncertainty and sensitivity analysis methods the two staffs developed evolved and matured over time. In some cases, more advanced techniques were developed, and in others, existing advanced methods were used to glean risk insights from PAs. of the disposal system [1, 2]. In order to provide assurance that radioactive waste disposal system is functioning properly, it is necessary to predict the individual dose as a part of safety assessment. Safety assessment is an iterative procedure to evaluate the performance of the disposal system and its potential impact on human health.

    system level performance assessments; uncertainty analyses and probabilistic, Monte-Carlo simulations INTERA works with both implementing organizations and regulators of radioactive waste disposal facilities in developing performance assessments (PAs) and safety cases to ensure that public health and safety and the environment are protected.

UNCERTAINTY AND SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS IN PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT FOR THE WASTE ISOLATION PILOT PLANT J.C. Helton Department of Mathematics Arizona State University Tempe, AZ ABSTRACT (3 S,T I The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) is under development by the ment of Energy (DOE) for the geologk (deep underground) disposal of transuranic (TRU) by: Performance Assessment Waste Form Radionuclide Concentration Disposal Facility Disposal System These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors.

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm : Joonhong Ahn, Shinichi Nakayama. radioactive waste in deep, geologic repositories require an assessment of performance over thousands of'years.

Because of the long regulatory period involved and the complex nature of the events and processes of interest, prediction of the performance of the disposal system will inevitably include uncertainties.

The uncertainty analysis is one approach to indicate long-term safety of a HLW disposal system. Usually it is very difficult to construct the computer code for uncertainty analysis by using individual process existing computer codes without revising source program in a short time.

A performance assessment (PA) for a radioactive waste disposal facility, or in general any type of engineered facility, is an analysis intended to answer three questions about the facility (i.e., Q1, Q2, and Q3) and one question about the analysis itself (i.e., Q4): Q1, “What can happen?”; Q2, “How likely is it to happen?”.

Uncertainty and sensitivity analysis techniques for use in performance assessments for radioactive waste disposal are reviewed. Summaries are given for the following techniques: differential analysis, Monte Carlo analysis, response surface methodology, and Fourier amplitude sensitivity test.

A workshop was organised in Seattle in on “Uncertainty Analysis for Performance Assessments of Radioactive Waste Disposal Systems”. One of the conclusions was that uncertainty analysis must be part of an overall system performance assessment and that a systematic approach.

A conceptual structure for performance assessments (PAs) for radioactive waste disposal facilities and other complex engineered facilities based on the following three basic conceptual entities is described: EN1, a probability space that characterizes aleatory uncertainty; EN2, a function that predicts consequences for individual elements of the sample space for aleatory uncertainty.

In the context of disposal of radioactive waste, a performance assessment is a quantitative evaluation of potential releases of radioactivity from a disposal facility into the environment, and assessment of the resultant radiological term performance assessment can refer to the process, model, or collection of models used to estimate future doses to human receptors.

Safety assessments estimate the long-term performance of geological disposal systems for radioactive waste using quantitative models.
