Final Report, Module 6 - ESDRED (Engineering Studies and Demonstrations of Repository Designs)



This is the final report of the ESDRED project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). This report covers the accomplishments of all modules and actions of the project. Images are included to illustrate the project. The report concludes with a list of recommendations. It notes that there is lots of opportunity for future integrated work related to the use of low-pH shot crete for rock support. Among other things, larger and more comprehensive test work, which is monitored over a much longer time frame, needs to be envisaged in order to observe the long term effects of low-pH shot crete. At the same time issues related to the use of reinforcing materials (e.g. corrosion of rock bolts and/or rebar) and of additives such as set accelerators and super plasticizers need to be studied in order to better understand the effect of low-pH chemical composition.
