Waste acceptance criteria for waste packages destined for near surface disposal containing radioactive waste from research, industrial and medical facilities; Study on a method that fills voidage in waste package with sandy soil

Nakata, Hisakazu ; Hayashi, Hirokazu ; Amazawa, Hiroya; Sakai, Akihiro 

JAEA plans to install disposal facilities for radioactive waste arising from research institutes. It must meet the technical standards specified in the relevant rule. One technical standard is that the disposal facilities shall be performance so as not to be left with the voids after the backfilling with soil. Additionally, the rule also requires this radioactive waste be enclosed in a container in which no harmful voids remain. In order to contribute to the development of a method that adapts the disposal facilities to these technical standards, JAEA adopts a waste conditioning artifice that aims for reducing a quantity of voidage in each waste container by a vibration filling method using sandy soil, providing with average void ratios inside the disposal facilities being adequately controlled. In this reports, filling property tests are conducted in the light of filling sand characteristics, types of metal waste and vibration conditions.
