Hydraulic conductivity and moisture density relationships

Hydraulic conductivity and moisture density relationships

Mixtures of crushed rock and bentonite are considered for backfilling and sealing high-level nuclear waste repositories. Many variables affect the hydraulic conductivity of such mixtures, including the size and shape of the rock particles, method of mixing and emplacement, water content and density of the clay, and the weight ratio of rock to clay.

Hydraulic testing of crushed Bandelier Tuff Technical

Hydraulic testing of crushed Bandelier Tuff Technical

Hydraulic conductivities, K, were experimentally determined as a function of volumetric water content, {theta}, in Bandelier Tuff cores from Los Alamos, New Mexico. These data were used to determine the feasibility of applying a new unsaturated flow technology (UFA{trademark}) to further hydrologic studies of tuffaceous rocks at Los Alamos.

Jun 22, 2020 The thermal properties of soils vary because of the different textures of soils; thus, it is valuable to conduct research on the development of thermal conductivity models for soils with different textures. Clay samples with different dry densities and increasing incremental water contents were prepared, their thermal conductivities were measured by the transient plane source (TPS) method.

Relationship between hydraulic conductivity and formation

Relationship between hydraulic conductivity and formation

Introduction. The reliable estimation of hydraulic conductivity (K) in a porous media is a very important task in many areas of engineering, soil science, and industry because hydraulic conductivity is an essential property describing the ability of soils to conduct fluid through the pore space between soil particles (Alyamani and Sen, 1993, Costa, 2006, Mitchell and Soga, 2005).

Sep 08, 2015 Crushed salt can be used as backfill to bury and conduct heat away from radioactive waste in salt repositories. As the crushed salt compacts during reconsolidation, its thermal, mechanical and hydrologic properties will change in a manner related to the porosity. Measurements of crushed salt thermal properties are conducted to evaluate such relationships. A simple mixture theory model is ...
