    Air flow through two argillaceous rock formations is investigated on the basis of laboratory work and its modelling to help in the interpretation of the results. Priority in the experimental program has been given to study ...
  • Anisotropic features on the thermal conductivity of a deep argillaceous formation 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Lima, Analice; Van Baelen, H; Sillen, X.; Li, Xiang Ling (IOS Press, 2015)
    Conference report

    An experimental study on Ypresian clays – one of the potential deep and sedimentary clay formations in Belgium for the geological disposal of heat-emitting radioactive waste – has been undertaken to systematically study ...
  • Comparative study of three in-situ heating test of anisotropic media: the HE-D, TER and ATLAS experiments 

    Garitte, Benoit; Sillen, X.; Li, XiangLing; Gilles, Armand; Vaunat, Jean; Gens Solé, Antonio (2009)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper presents an interpretation ofthe Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) behaviour of three clays in three in-situ heating tests. First, the in-situ measurements are explored and common rock features are identified. Then ...
  • Exploring fissure opening and their connectivity in a cenozoic clay during gas injection 

    González Blanco, Laura; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Jommi, Cristina; Sillen, X.; Li, Xiang Ling (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Gas transport properties in argillaceous rocks are becoming an important issue within different contexts of energy-related geomechanics (disposal of radioactive waste, production of shale gas, CO2 sequestration). The present ...
  • Gas migration in a Cenozoic clay: experimental results and numerical modelling 

    González Blanco, Laura; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Jommi, Cristina; Li, Xiang Ling; Sillen, X. (Elsevier, 2016-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Gas migration through a potential host clay formation for the geological disposal of radioactive waste in Belgium is experimentally investigated in the laboratory, and numerical modelling is performed to help in the ...
  • Hydro-chemical modelling of in situ behaviour of bituminized radioactive waste in Boom Clay 

    Mokni, Nadia; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Valcke, Elie; Bleyen, N; Smets, Esteven; Li, Xiang Ling; Sillen, X. (2014-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    The hydro-chemical (CH) interaction between swelling Eurobitum bituminized radioactive waste (BW) and Boom Clay was investigated to assess the feasibility of geological disposal for the long-term management of this waste. ...
