The drilling of galleries induces damage propagation in the surrounding medium and creates the Excavation Damaged Zone (EDZ) in which the material properties are modified. The prediction of the fracture structure and flow properties evolution within this zone are major issues especially in the context of underground nuclear waste storage. Since experimental results indicate that shear strain localisation appears prior to fractures, we model the EDZ with strain localisation in shear band mode using the coupled local second gradient model. The evolution of the intrinsic hydraulic permeability inside the fractures is taken into consideration as well as the influence of gallery ventilation on the rock desaturation. The numerical results provide information about the damaged zone extension, structure and behaviour with good correspondence to in situ measurements and observations. [less ▲]

Galleries drilling leads to damage propagation, fracturing and properties modifications in the surrounding medium. The prediction of the damaged zone behaviour is an important matter and needs to be properly assessed. To do so the fractures can be modelled using shear strain localisation. The coupled local second gradient model is used under unsaturated conditions to correctly model the strain localisation behaviour. The permeability evolution and the rock desaturation due to air ventilation in galleries are considered. Finally, a hydro-mechanical modelling of a gallery excavation in Callovo-Oxfordian claystone is performed leading to a fairly good representation of the damaged zone. [less ▲]

The unsaturated behaviour of Callovo-Oxfordian argillite is investigated through the modelling of 2 in-situ experiments. The first test studies the influence of ventilation in a gallery on the hydro-mechanical behaviour of the rock mass. The second test consists in a gas injection in the rock mass from an experimental borehole. A hydro-mechanical model is described and used in the modelling of the experiments. A review of the main hydro-mechanical parameters of argillite is presented. The numerical results highlight the need of a flow boundary condition reproducing the fluid transfers between the surroundings and the rock mass. The influence of dissolved gas on the compressibility of the liquid phase is also emphasised. [less ▲]

Drilling of galleries induces stress perturbations that trigger damage propagation in the surrounding medium. The excavation process creates then the so-called excavation damaged zone around the galleries. The prediction of the extension and of the fracture structure within this zone remains nowadays a major issue especially in the context of underground storage. Since localised deformation in shear band mode is frequently observed in experimental works, the excavation damaged zone can be modelled by considering the development of shear strain localisation bands. To correctly model this behaviour, an enhanced model with a regularisation method is required. In underground structures, air ventilation inside the galleries induces a rock-atmosphere interaction that may lead to drainage and to rock desaturation close to the gallery wall. Such desaturation may influence the damage zone structure and needs to be studied. A hydro-mechanical modelling of a gallery excavation including air ventilation is thus performed and the numerical results provide information about the damaged zone extension, the strain localisation bands pattern and the influence of rock desaturation.

Since strain localization in shear band mode is frequently observed in experimental works, the excavation damaged zone can be modeled by considering the development of strain localization bands. A hydro-mechanical modelling of a gallery excavation is performed. The numerical results exhibit an excavation damaged zone extension similar to the in situ measurements and provides information about the rock state within this zone. [less ▲]

Galleries excavation leads to damage and significant properties changes of the host rock. The fracture structure of the excavation damaged zone created around the galleries remains nowadays a major issue especially in the context of underground storage. In order to correctly model the strain localisation, the second gradient local model (regularization method) is used within a hydro-mechanical modelling of a gallery excavation. The numerical results provide information about the strain localisation bands pattern. [less ▲]

The present advances in hydro-mechanical analysis of a clayey rock fracturing are presented at a department seminar. The damaged zone existing around galleries composing underground structures is studied through two aspects: rock-atmosphere interaction at gallery wall and rock fracturing modelling. These two aspects are discussed through the numerical results of an in situ ventilation test modelling and a biaxial compression test modelling. [less ▲]

The excavation process creates a damaged zone around the galleries composing underground structures. The prediction of the extension but especially of the fracturing structure in this zone remains an unresolved issue in the context of underground storage. Disturbed argillite and damage (fracturing) can be numerically modeled by the development of strain localization bands. Within the framework of classical finite elements, the strain localization depends on the mesh while the second gradient method overcomes this difficulty. This method is implemented in the finite element code Lagamine and is used to model biaxial compression tests performed in laboratory. [less ▲]

Hydro and hydro-mechanical numerical modellings are performed in order to acquire a better understanding of clayey rock behaviour and transfers occurring during an in situ ventilation test. The test is performed in an experimental gallery that is part of an underground research laboratory. A biphasic flow model for unsaturated soil and an elasto-plastic constitutive law are used for the host formation. The models include exchange condition of fluid mass, anisotropy and the excavation damaged zone around the gallery. Finally, the ventilation test is reproduced and the model is calibrated based on the matching between numerical results and experimental measurements. [less ▲]

Long-term repository of radioactive waste in deep argillaceous geological media needs a good understanding of the host formation behaviour. Considering the safety function of the formation and the need of low permeability, the behaviour of the excavation damaged zone (EDZ) is a major issue. Because drainage may modify the structure and the size of this zone, a ventilation test (SDZ) is realised by the French national radioactive waste management agency (ANDRA) in an experimental gallery of the Meuse/Haute-Marne underground research laboratory located in Callovo-Oxfordian claystone. The aim is to characterise the effect of the desaturation and possible resaturation of the damaged zone due to controlled ventilation. Numerical modellings are performed to reproduce the ventilation test. A biphasic flow model in unsaturated soil and an elasto-plastic constitutive law are used for the host formation. A nonclassical boundary condition has been developed in order to model the exchanges between the cavity and the rock. Numerical results show that it is possible to calibrate the models to obtain a satisfactory reproduction of the in situ experimental measurements and a better understanding of the fluid transfer around the gallery during the ventilation test.
