- ... Non-compacted pellet/powder bentonite mixtures are considered as candidate sealing plug materials in geological disposals of radioactive waste. Due to its nature, this mixture is characterized by a heterogeneous porosity network, which is responsible for its complex hydro-mechanical (HM) behaviour. The French Institute of Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) has investigated this mixture with ...
