STUDY OF BACKFILLING OF FISSURES IN GRANITE BY PRECIPITATION OF SILICA
The discharge of high activity radioactive wastes in granitic formations heats the rock in the area of the waste repository. Silica, a constituent of granite, may be dissolved by subterranean water in the heated area and reprecipitated in the colder outer zone. The aim of this study is to quantify this phenomenon experimentally and to assess its extent and effects by means of a numerical model.
