EURAD-WP-Gas: Mechanistic understanding of gas transport in clay materials

Auf einen Blick

  • Drittmittelgeber : EU und andere Internationale Programme (European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management EURAD)
  • Kontaktperson : Lukas Keller


The main objectives of this project are:

  • to improve the mechanistic understanding of gas transport processes in natural and engineered clay materials, their couplings with the mechanical behaviour and their impact on the properties of these materials.
  • to evaluate the gas transport regimes that can be active at the scale of a geological disposal system and their potential impact on barrier integrity and repository performance.
