Abstract

This work was carried out under subcontract to the Los Alamos National Laboratory as part of the Nevada Nuclear Waste Storage Investigations managed by the Nevada Operation Office of the US Department of Energy to identify chemical interactions between cement or concrete in a tuff repository under mild hydrothermal conditions. The hydrothermal conditions used here may be expected during the thermal period and, therefore, may predict the interaction pathways. If not, they serve as accelerated tests on interactions that might take place at a lower temperature over a prolonged duration.
