Could any one suggest how I should proceed to design a permanent structure. Any Guidelines.
Closest thing I can think of is a rock, but you have to keep it away from glaciers or glacial flooding. If you can put it where you like, find yourself a piece of granite the right size and design that. For cultural value, even the USNRC can't guarantee nuclear fuel storage for more than 10,000 years, and they're probably just faking the last 5000 years.
