Compacted bricks of bentonite/sand mixture are planned to be used as sealing plugs in deep radioactive waste disposal repositories because of their low permeability, high swelling capacity and favourable properties with respect to radionuclide retention. The isolating capacity of compacted bentonite/sand mixture is closely related to microstructure features that have been often investigated, in particular by using scanning electron microscope (SEM or ESEM) and mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP… CONTINUE READING
