The thermal expansion characteristics of mudstone

The location of mudstone rock formations as a repository of radioactive materials has attracted great attention from the international rock mechanics community. In this paper, the strain and thermal expansion coefficient of mudstone during the heating and constant temperature stages are studied through experiments. The results can provide a scientific basis for the design and safety protection of related projects.
