An empirical model for the thermal conductivity of compacted bentonite and a bentonite–sand mixture

Compacted bentonite and a bentonite–sand mixture have been considered as a potential buffer material for nuclear waste stored underground. The effects of dry density, water content and sand fraction on the thermal conductivity of the mixtures were investigated via data collected with the transient line source technique. With those parameters known, a single expression for the thermal conductivity of the mixture ...

Determination of thermal properties at Aspo HRL: Comparison and evaluation of methods and methodologies for borehole KA 2599 G01

This report is a comprehensive compilation of a variety of studies performed on rock in a borehole at a potential nuclear waste storage facility in Sweden. Density, water absorption, mineral composition and thermal properties were studied to determine the site's suitability as a safe storage area. Thermal properties are an important factor since the nuclear waste canisters will continue to give off heat in storage due to nuclear fission, and ...
