In this paper, a storage cell for the high level radioactive wastes is studied in order to identify and demonstrate the coupled phenomena evolving in the high level radioactive wastes (HLW) storage. According to the various important processes in the storage structures, special attention is paid on the coupling elastoplastic and viscoplastic damage processes in short and long term. In the calculations, the complicated thermo-hydro-mechanical coupling process has been taken into consideration. These numerical calculations allow us to obtain some quantitative results describing the mechanical behaviour and coupling thermo-hydro-mechanical processes for a short-and long-term in the storage cell.
