To achieve the high sealing capability required for the bentonite engineered barriers used in geological disposal facilities for radioactive waste, the bentonite should be highly compacted. Previous investigation of methods to enable such compaction has revealed that the construction methods used have an impact on the density distribution. However, these investigations focused on achieving the required average dry density in the bentonite barriers and little attention has been paid to the distribution of dry density. As a result, there has been a lack of understanding of how the construction method used affects this distribution, which is highly pertinent to...
