Development of grouting technologies for geological disposal of high level waste in Japan, 2; Selection of grout materials

Kawaguchi, Masanao; Kishi, Hirokazu*; Fujita, Tomo ; Kishida, Kiyoshi*

For the selection of grout material for the construction of underground facilities for the geological disposal of High Level Waste, the criteria that is set by reference to IMA-project(which was a project of the grout material relating to the R20 program was conducted by POSIVA of Finland), has been used up to FY 2010. However, if the criteria of penetrability are fulfilled, the penetrability of the material for the candidate rock fracture is not ensured. Moreover, from the results of laboratory grout penetration test which has been carried out at FY 2010, it was appeared that the penetrability has been scarified in order to satisfy the strength and breeding characteristics. In this report, strength and bleeding properties are classified as reference properties, not as principal properties. Instead of that, new criteria of penetrability defined based on geological features at the site are proposed. Also the determination procedure of designed hydraulic fracture aperture which is one of above newly proposed criteria will be proposed.
