Abstract [en]

Four computer codes were applied for a prediction of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical responses during an in situ heater experiment which simulates a nuclear waste deposition hole with a waste over-pack and bentonite buffer, surrounded by fractured rock. The elevated temperature in the heater surroundings, which was maintained at 100 C for 8.5 months, generated substantial heat-driven moisture flow and swelling in the clay buffer, and thermal expansion of the surrounding fractured rock. Predicted system responses - including temperature. moisture content, fluid pressure, stress and displacement - were compared to measurements at 70 sensors located both in the clay buffer and the near-field rock. An overall good agreement between modeling and measured results indicates that most thermo-hydro-mechanical responses are fairly well represented by the coupled numerical models. Uncertainties occur for modeling of hydromechanical behavior of the swelling clay buffer at low saturation, modeling of near-field heterogeneous mechanical behavior of the low-stressed fractured reek, and modeling of the rock-buffer interface.
