Water absorption/swelling pressure of powder bentonites and analogism on water molecular formation in bentonite

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This study investigated water absorption and swelling pressure characteristics in a bentonite-based buffer from an unsaturated state to saturation from the viewpoint of material specifications such as the kinds of bentonite and dry density. From those experimentally obtained results, a database of water-diffusion coefficient and swelling-pressure for bentonites is presented. The author also discusses analogism on water molecular formation in bentonite.
