Reliability Testing of Assumptions about Hydrological Permeability of Drainage Paths in Dangerous Waste Storage Site
Two assumptions about development of hydrological permeability of drainage paths in a storage site were formulated. Validity of the assumptions was tested with the aid of system reliability analysis tools. The scheme of the drainage paths was converted into a graphical model suitable for the analysis. In order to identify the input data, geologists were asked to classify the possibility of creating a barrier for each predisposition type. Verbal characterizations were interpreted as point estimates of probabilities. Quantifications resulted in values that were in accordance with the assumptions. The testing confirmed applicability of the assumptions for safety assessment of the storage site.
