A numerical analysis was conducted to assess the long term stability of the rock caverns BMA and BLA for the final repository of low and middle level nuclear waste at the SFR facility in Forsmark, Sweden. The objective was to analyze if there exists a long term risk for an ongoing loosening of the rock mass up to the surface due to degradation and weathering of the rock mass adjacent to the walls of the rock caverns.
The theme of RockEng22 is Canadian Strengths and Future Directions in Rock Mechanics.
Dr. Xing has over 8 years of working experience on geomechanics, both in industry and academics, in numerical simulations and laboratory experiments. His expertise is on enhancing energy extraction from subsurface with engineering treatment, including geothermal, unconventional oil/gas resources, etc. He has experience in developing analytical solutions, numerical codes, laboratory experiments, and data-based methods related to various geomechanics applications.
Dr. Xing has worked on different projects including: numerical modeling of the stimulation of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) with DOE’s FORGE project, in-situ stress measurements for geothermal and oil/gas reservoirs with newly proposed temperature signatures and flowback methods, machine learning models to predict formation properties using drilling data, core analysis for unconventional oil/gas reservoirs, numerical modeling and experimental investigation of hydraulic fracturing growth in layered reservoirs, and thermal-hydrological-mechanical analysis in hydrate bearing sediments.
