Abstract: This article looks at GMZ deposits as a candidate for buffer material of high-level radioactive wastes (HLW) in china. A thermal analyzer was used to measure thermal conductivity of compacted GMZ001 bentonite using the transient plane source technique. Results found that for samples having the same weight percentage of dry and wet density, thermal conductivity increased as the water content increased.
