Experimental investigation on the thermal volumetric behavior of highly compacted GMZ01 Bent

Abstract : Gaomiaozi (GMZ) Bent has been recognized as the potential buffer/backfill material for construction of Chinese deep geological repository for disposal of high-level radioactive waste (HLW). For investigation of pressure and suction effects on the thermal volumetric behavior of the highly compacted GMZ01 Bent, a new suction-temperature controlled oedometer was developed. Several suction and pressure controlled cyclic heating and cooling tests have been performed on highly compacted GMZ01 Bent. Suctions ranging from 4 to 110. MPa, temperatures from 25 to 80. °C and vertical loads from 0.1 to 5. MPa were applied. Results show that heating at constant suction and pressure induces either swelling or contraction. At high pressure and low suction, heating tends to induce contraction, while at low pressure and high suction, heating induces expansion. Thermal volumetric strain of GMZ01 Bent tested strongly depends on the overconsolidation ratio (OCR). Two opposite mechanisms are considered to explain the observed phenomena, that is, the volume increase induced by the thermal expansion of the mineralogical components and the adsorbed water and the double-layer thickness at the microstructure level, as well as the volume reduction caused by the macrostructural rearrangements. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
