This study presented the overview on the behavior of bentonite-sand mixture used in high level radioactive waste disposal. Both unconfined compression test and triaxial compression test were conducted out that unsaturated-saturated bentonite-sand samples were applied temperature effect below 100 degrees Celsius. Unconfined compressive strength was determined with various temperatures and different relative humidity for unsaturated bentonite-sand specimens, so the growing of pore pressure due to heating was most significant for interpretation to THM behaviour of artificial barrier system compositing bentonite materials.
