Abstract
Understanding gas transport in saturated compacted bentonite is of great importance for the assessment of the long-term safety of engineered barriers for disposal of heat-emitting radioactive wastes. Gas migration in bentonite materials is strongly affected by the initial microstructure and state (dry density and degree of saturation) set on compaction, as well as by the stress state/history and the deformation undergone on gas injection. Particularly, the present study focuses on studying, both...
