Abstract
The influence of watertocement ratio (w/c) on the compressive strength of cementbiocharspent resins matrix was investigated. Spent resins waste from nuclear reactor operation was solidified using cement with w/c ranging from 0.35 to 0.90 by weight. In this study, biochar was used as a cement admixture. Some properties of spent resins and biochar were determined prior to the formulation study. Compressive strength of harden cementbiocharspent resins matrix was determined at 28 days. The compressive strength of cementbiocharspent resins matrix was found to depend on the w/c and the amount of spent resins added to the formulation. The immersion test of cementbiocharspent resins matrix showed no significant effects of cracking and swelling. The compressive strength of the cementbiocharspent resins matrix increased after two weeks in water immersion test.
