Distribution of chloride in a salt-saturated grout in contact with rock salt
Wakeley, Lillian D.; Burkes, J. P.
Miscellaneous PaperAbstract: Bond strength of a sodium chloride-saturated grout to rock salt suggested chemical bonding existed across the interface. Chemical analyses using scanning electron microscopy/energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy of various locations in the grout showed a significantly greater quantity of chloride near the interface than near the perimeter of specimens. The resultant concentration of chloride is at least partially controlled by the proximity of rock salt.
