Abstract : The objectives of the study were to: (a) Develop a plan which would contribute to ensuring reproducibility of diagnostic methods used in research and development on repository sealing materials; (b) Compare results of tests performed by similar methods on similar cementitious seal materials, conducted and prepared in each of the two laboratories; (c) Use the results of complementary, but not identical, tests performed in the two laboratories to cofirm the validity of performance-related information gained; and (d) Generate data on a plugging material which could be a candidate for repository sealing in halite or anhydrite host formations or formations containing both halite and anhydrite.
