    Description: The excavation damaged zone (EDZ) around a radioactive waste repository will act as a potential escape route for gases produced from anoxic corrosion of waste containers and other metallic components within the underground facility. For assessment of the impact of the gases on the repository safety, the gas-flow behaviour of the EDZ has to be characterized, understood and predicted. This issue has been recently investigated for the Callovo-Oxfordian and Opalinus claystones at the GRS laboratory. Various kinds of gas-flow experiments were carried out by flushing nitrogen gas through cracked and resealed claystone samples under different hydromechanical conditions. Extensive results obtained include: (a) gas permeability of fractured claystones in relation to fracture closure under loads; (b) effects of gas humidity on the sealing and gas permeability of fractures; (c) gas-flow behaviour in water-saturated and resealed fractures characterized by three key parameters, namely gas-breakthrough pressure, permeability and shut-in pressure; (d) relationships of the gas parameters to the intrinsic permeability of the resealed claystone and the applied confining stress, as well as relationships between the gas parameters; and (e) the impact of gas-pressure rise on the reopening of the closed pathways and/or creation of new ones in resealed claystone.

    Description: Crushed claystone produced by excavation of repository openings has been investigated as backfill/seal material. The raw coarse-grained claystone can be used for backfilling repository openings and, in mixture with bentonite, for sealing boreholes, drifts and shafts. The investigation programme focused on characterizing the thermo-hydro-mechanical properties of the excavated Callovo-Oxfordian claystone and the compacted claystone–bentonite mixtures, including (1) mechanical compaction, (2) gas and water permeability as a function of porosity, (3) water retention and saturation, (4) swelling capacity and (5) thermal properties of the materials. The major results are presented in this paper.
