Water permeability test of rock specimen with natural fractures using high viscosity liquid


JNC-TN8430 2001-006, 72 Pages, 2001/10


We had been conducted to study hydraulic permeability along fracture intersection by NETBLOCK system using natural rock specimen. Since the permeability of this rock specimen fracture is high, it was suggest that turbulent flow might be occurred in available range of measurement system. In case of turbulent flow, estimated permeability and fracture aperture from test data tend to be low. Therefore we should achieve laminar flow. This study was used the high viscosity liquid instead of water, and test conditions which could attain laminar flow with the rock specimen was examined. The rock specimen is granite rock, has natural Y-type fractures intersection. A solution of Methyl-cellulose is used as high viscosity liquid. Due to the high viscosity liquid, hydraulic head could be measured in the wide range, and high viscosity liquid improved the accuracy of measurement. Laminar flow could be achieved in the rock specimen by the high viscosity liquid over 0.1wt%.

Studies on radiation effects on high-viscous fluids of co-precipitate and clay systems

The overflow from HIC at ALPS was owing to water radiolysis of beta rays in co-precipitate slurry of carbonate, leading to the volume increase of slurry and supernatant formation. The radiation effects (radiolysis and material degradation) on high-viscous fluids after long-term (high dose) irradiation is quite different from those on low-viscous fluids such as aqueous solutions. The understanding of effects on high-viscous fluids, containing suspension of clay which is planned to be used as a buffer material for final disposal, is important in long-term storage and disposal of radioactive wastes. In this study, the physical and viscosity properties of fluids of co-precipitate and clay systems were measured before and after irradiation of electron beam and gamma ray to discuss the relations among their properties quantitatively.
