Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Development and field placement of a salt-saturated concrete at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) included extensive testing of field-cast specimens in the laboratory. Such test specimens were cast during two field events, each part of the Small-Scale Seal Performance Tests (SSSPT) at the WIPP, designated Test Series A and B. This report presents data from laboratory tests of SSSPT specimens at ages of three days to one year. The concrete maintained desired physical properties throughout the testing program, maintaining a volume increase and achieving a compressive strength of near 7,000 psi at one year. Data were analyzed by a curve-fitting computer program, and are presented in figures showing best-fitting curves, which are models of the concrete properties with time.
