Abstract: This article looked at the simulation model used to control temperature evolution in the field for Swedish nuclear waste repositories. Heat transport properties of rock are known key factors for the repository layout and were measured using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Compared to all samples tested, results found bedrock dominated by deformed granitoid rocks were characterized by relatively high thermal conductivities.
