Abstract

Predicting the degradation rate of the metallic barrier in a robust and reliable manner represents one of the greatest scientific and technical challenges currently known to mankind, because its lifetime largely exceeds that of any industrial application. This issue was already explored during three previous workshops: Cadarache (France, 2001), Nice (France, 2004) and Pennsylvania State University (USA, 2007). The main objective of the workshop was to bring together scientists and engineers from all over the world who are developing high-level nuclear waste disposal technologies, with the goal of promoting scientific and technical exchanges concerning long term behaviour of metallic containment materials and engineered barrier systems. This document contains a compilation of all abstracts of the manuscripts that were presented at the 4th International Workshop on Long-Term Prediction of Corrosion Damage in Nuclear Waste Systems (acronym: LongTermCor2010). This workshop was held from June 28 to July 2, 2010 in Bruges (Belgium).
