This paper describes the development of a simplified performance assessment (PA) model, within a structured PA framework, that can be used to make fast, high-level evaluations of, and comparisons between, potential long-term radioactive waste disposal system alternatives. The utility of the of the simplified PA model is demonstrated by applying it to two published PAs: one for mined geologic disposal in clay and one for deep borehole disposal in granite.
