- ... The argillite extracted from Bure site (France) is proposed, after being crushed and compacted, as a possible sealing and backfill material in the French geological high-level radioactive waste disposal. In this study, the effects of the grain size distribution and the microstructure on the hydro-mechanical behaviour of the compacted crushed argillite have been investigated. The volume change prop ...
