Abstract:Changes in length and volume of cementitious grouts for use in nuclear waste isolation have been investigated, and com-pared with the behavior of other mixtures, neat cement pastes, fly-ash containing mixtures, and mixtures with high-range water reducers (‘superplasticizers’). Expansive and non-expansive for-mulations are compared with respect to their changes in length and volume, both at atmospheric pressure and elevated curing condi-t ions, including those simulating placement under pressures of up to 1600 psi hydrostatic.
