Study of fracture filling colloidal silica grouts under groundwater conditions in the engineered barrier system

Abstract:

The present work has established a series of grouting performance criteria for low-pH non cementitious colloidal silica grouts, a relatively new fracture filling material which has been suggested for the construction of an underground disposal repository for high-level nuclear waste, known as the Engineered Barrier System (EBS). The research investigation reported here includes experimental analysis of the gelling during the grouting period; a study of the physical and chemical stability o...
