We define four distinct thermohydrochemical environments for drip shield and waste package corrosion in the potential nuclear waste repository, referred to here as the Dry, Seepage + Evaporation, Seepage + Condensation + Evaporation, and the Seepage + Condensation environments. These environments are bounded by temperature and relative humidity conditions at drift wall and drip shield/waste package surfaces judged most likely to initiate fundamental changes in the quantity and/or chemistry of in-drift waters. The duration in which different environments might exist is evaluated by comparing simulated, time-dependent temperature and relative humidity curves for three different locations within repository drift 25. In-drift conditions and processes postulated to cause drip shield/waste package corrosion are evaluated within the context of the thermohydrochemical environments by various means, including analytical calculations and geochemical simulations. Of the four environments considered here, the Seepage + Evaporation environment presents the most significant potential for aqueous corrosion of drip shield and waste package materials, and may persist for approximately 500 years in center drift locations. The likelihood for corrosion in other thermohydrochemical environments is significantly lower, but may increase with the acquisition of new data or the demonstration of extenuating circumstances.
