In Sweden, the Forsmark site, a sparsely fractured crystalline host rock, is selected to be the future location for building a deeply sitted nuclear waste disposal. The implementation of highly detailed, and DFN (Discrete Fracture Network) based, site models is required for both post-closure safety assessment and construction purposes. DFN-based models are considered as the most accurate representation of the fractured system and of the geological context.
The International Symposium on Rock Fragmentation by Blasting (FRAGBLAST) is an international forum for sharing the state of the art in rock blasting and explosives engineering.
