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 ...

Thermal conductivity of compacted bentonite as a buffer material for a high-level radioactive waste repository

Bentonite buffer is a key element in a high-level radioactive waste (HLW) repository as it dissipates decay heat from the waste to the surrounding rock. This article looked at Kyeongju bentonite as a candidate buffer material and investigated the dependence of thermal conductivity on various ...
