Natural barriers containing swelling clay minerals are of utmost importance for the site selection process for radioactive waste repository in Slovenia. Beside this, swelling clays, claystones and marls represent constant potential instability for road and railway cuttings or embankments, therefore it is important to quickly identify swelling potential these minerals in rocks. The main goal of this project is to develop a method for quick identification and determination of swelling potential of rocks in Slovenia on the basis of mineralogical analysis of its samples.
