Title: Method and apparatus for in-situ densification of geomaterials for sealing applications

Abstract

A method and apparatus is described for forming improved seals in boreholes formed in host rock by using the apparatus to introduce a feedstock into the borehole and simultaneously subjecting the introduced feedstock to both compressive and shear stresses until the borehole becomes filled and sealed. 3 figs.
