Requirements for expected performance of closure components in crystalline rock

Fujita, Tomo ; Suyama, Yasuhiro*; Toida, Masaru*

Based on the results and experiences obtained from the tunnel sealing experiments in the Canadian underground research laboratory in crystalline rock under the collaboration with JNC (now JAEA), this report summarizes the requirements for closure components such as backfilling material and hydraulic plug from the viewpoint of expected barrier performance, taking account of key issues on sealing technologies which have been left open after H12 project. The results of the tunnel sealing experiments indicate that the constructability of closure components and low permeability of the hydraulic plug is well performed. Requirements for the closure components and key issues for further study are identified from the viewpoint of barrier performance considering a range of events related to the sealing and taking account of where these are occurred as well as appropriate countermeasure for them. It is also discussed how to apply these preferable closure components to the scale of repository layout, and further technical issues are then identified.
