Development of cement based composites suitable for radionuclide immobilization is of great interest for secure containment of nuclear waste. This requires, in particular, detailed knowledge of how radionuclides are transported in such composites. In this paper we investigate the transport of gadolinium in a dry cement composite. Experimental data are obtained in a non-destructive way by neutron imaging. Their theoretical interpretation is based on a diffusion-advection model in which sorption is included.
