This report describes how experiments on the desaturation of cementiteous materials will be performed within FORGE WP3.4 "Engineered Barriers and seals – Concrete laboratory experiments". The main aim of these experiments is to determine how gas flows through the cementiteous materials used i.e. desaturation as function of gas pressure, the homogeneity of this desaturation (desaturation front, preferential pathways or fingering) and gas permeability.
