Colloidal effect is one of the major factors to enhance the transport of radionuclide in groundwater. In this study, the impact of kinetic reactions of radionuclide sorption onto both the fracture wall and colloid on the transport behavior of radionuclide were investigated by carrying out the transport experiment of the radionuclide with colloid through fractured rock. In the experiments, the Cs and clay colloid were used as moderately sorbing radionuclide and typical natural colloid by the concentration of 1.0$$times$$10$$^{-6}$$ g/l (7.5$$times$$10$$^{-9}$$ mol/l) and 3.5$$times$$10$$^{-3}$$ g/l, respectively. The granodiorite with artificially the single fracture (dimension: 50$$times$$50$$times$$0.5 mm) was used. The results of the transport experiments were analyzed by numerical simulation code of radionuclide transport COLFRAC which can model radionuclide transport based on either equilibrium or kinetic reaction of radionuclide sorption onto fracture wall and colloid. Consequently, it was indicated that calculated results strongly dep
