The Radioactive Waste Management Funding and Research Center (RWMC) is leading a research programme to evaluate the gas transport mechanisms through a TRU (TRans-Uranium) waste disposal facility in Japan and acquire information on gas migration properties. In this paper we describe a series of laboratory gas injection tests using the bentonite adopted for use in Japanese TRU disposal, as well as an attempted visualization of the gas migration path inside the bentonite used as a buffer. By building a conceptual model from the results of these tests, the characteristics of gas migration through to breakthrough for bentonite can now...
