  • Hydro-mechanical behaviour of bentonite pellet mixtures 

    Hoffmann Jauge, Christian; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (Elsevier, 2007)
    Article
    Open Access
    Granular mixtures made of high-density pellets of bentonite are being evaluated as an alternative buffer material for waste isolation. Ease of handling is an often-mentioned advantage. The paper described the experimental ...
  • Hydromechanical behaviour of compacted granular expansive mixtures: experimental and constitutive study 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian (2011-04-01)
    Article

    Compacted granular mixtures of high-density bentonite pellets have been evaluated as an alternative buffer material to fill the empty space around nuclear waste disposal canisters in horizontal drifts. Despite the obvious ...
  • Modelling the field behaviour of a granular expansive barrier 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian (Elsevier, 2007)
    Article
    Open Access
    The large scale ‘‘Engineered Barrier’’ (EB) experiment, performed at the Mont Terri Underground Laboratory is described. A coupled hydromechanical model is then used to simulate the test performance. Constitutive parameters ...
