Abstract: In general this chapter deals with spent LWR fuel, mainly UO2 and mixed oxide fuel, in respect to its change of the chemical and mechanical properties during long-time storage in a deep underground repository. In more detail, the fuels alteration with time in respect to radionuclide inventory, temperature, radiation damage and structural stability is coupled to its corrosion, once it comes in contact with groundwater, in a final repository.
