Title: Risk-assessment-methodology development for waste isolation in geologic media. Technical review of documents NUREG/CR-0394, NUREG/CR-0424, NUREG/CR-0458

Abstract

A review of five documents that were prepared for the USNRC by Sandia Laboratories is presented in this report. The documents covered in the present review include: NUREG/CR-1262, NUREG/CR-1376, NUREG/CR-1377, NUREG/CR-1397 and NUREG/CR-1608. This constitutes the second phase of the review; the first phase was reported in Volume 1 of NUREG/CR-1672, November 1980. Two of the documents concern simplified computational methods illustrative of the calculations necessary to produce a response surface. Three of the reports pertain to statistical methods, including the application of Latin hypercube Sampling (LHS). The following observations have been made relative to the above reports: (1) the reports are, in general, difficult to read, due, in part, to unnecessarily complicated notation and lack of adequate explanation and examples, (2) the relationship of the work to similar work in the US and abroad is not discussed, and (3) limitations of the LHS method are not discussed in sufficient depth. The Sandia's response to this review is published as NUREG/CR-2428. Volume 1 is scheduled for completion in June 1982.
