Long-term safety and performance assessment of nuclear waste disposal site and facilities

Embark on a comprehensive study of nuclear waste disposal site and facility safety and performance assessment with our nuanced approach. We cover every phase, from construction to closure, and account for the long-term evolution of the site, incorporating large-scale geological processes such as earthquakes and microseismicity.

Our assessment includes fully coupled thermal, hydrogeological, geomechanical, and geochemical processes.

Our numerical modeling services prioritize regulatory requirements for safety and performance assessment, employing rigorous strategies for software validation and verification.

Tailored for both high-level nuclear waste disposal and low/intermediate-level nuclear waste disposal, our services ensure a meticulous and reliable evaluation of every aspect of the facility's lifecycle




DECOVALEX (DEvelopment of COupled models and their VALidation against Experiments) stands as an ambitious international research initiative, dynamically advancing the understanding of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes within geological systems. Within this collaborative effort, DynaFrax proudly leads a dedicated task, bringing its expertise to the forefront of the project.

As DECOVALEX transitions into its next phase, D2027, DynaFrax assumes a dual role, serving as both a Funding Organization and a Research Organization. This evolution underscores DynaFrax's commitment to not only contribute financial support but also actively engage in the ongoing research, ensuring the project's success and its valuable impact on the predictive modeling of geological processes for applications such as nuclear waste disposal, CO2 sequestration, and geothermal energy extraction. Join us as we spearhead innovation in understanding and managing complex subsurface environments.

GIS-based assessment of risks associated with earthquake
Embark on a groundbreaking GIS-based risk assessment journey, centered on Pohang city in the aftermath of the 2017 M5.4 earthquake. In collaboration with Handong University and the City of Pohang, we meticulously analyze building damage, damage types, and the intricate relationships between distance from the epicenter, hypocenter, and varying ground conditions. Our collaborative efforts leverage state-of-the-art GIS technology to provide a comprehensive understanding of seismic risk factors, facilitating informed decision-making for future resilience strategies in Pohang. Join us in shaping a safer and more resilient urban landscape through advanced earthquake risk assessment.

Induced seismicity modelling in gas fields
Embark on a sophisticated journey of induced seismicity modeling with our dynamic geomechanical numerical approach, offering an explicit representation of complex geological faults. Applied specifically to the Netherlands' Groningen natural gas field, our modeling delves into the past 60 years of seismic events induced by gas production. Furthermore, we extend our capabilities to predict future seismic events, particularly post-2022 when gas production ceases. Trust our advanced numerical modeling to provide a comprehensive understanding of induced seismicity, aiding in informed decision-making and risk assessment for the dynamic landscape of the Groningen gas field.
In-site stress assessment
Embark on a comprehensive in-situ stress assessment journey with our cutting-edge approach, encompassing an in-depth analysis of mapping borehole images, borehole breakout, and hydraulic fracturing data. Through state-of-the-art techniques, we unveil the intricate details of stress distribution within subsurface formations. Our methodology integrates advanced technologies to provide a holistic understanding of in-situ stress conditions, offering valuable insights for geological and engineering applications.
