Calculation and testing of the behaviour of unsaturated clay as a barrier in radioactive waste repositories (Catsius clay project)
In the multiple-barrier isolation concept for geological disposal of radioactive waste, unsaturated clays are proposed as potential materials for protective buffers around the emplaced waste canisters. These materials are subjected to natural hydration from the host rock and to slowly decaying heat from the heat-generating waste
