Influence of creep on water pressure measured from borehole tests in the Meuse/Haute-Marne Callovo-Oxfordian argillites

Abstract

Porewater pressure is an important parameter for use in safety assessment of underground waste disposal. In order to measure porewater pressure in the Callovo-Oxfordian argillites, Andra has performed several in-situ tests, which consist in measuring time-evolution of water pressure in an almost closed chamber. This was accomplished using an in-place pressure sensor coupled with an electromagnetic transmission device (called an EPG probe). The measured values show a small hydraulic overpressure (0.1 MPa) compared with the estimated value at the corresponding depth. In the framework of a scientific cooperation agreement between Andra and Ineris, a study was undertaken to examine whether all or a part of this overpressure could be attributed to the hydro-mechanical coupled processes linked with the creep of argillites and the stress relaxation in the experimental measuring chamber-nearby. In the whole, the numerical results were in good agreement with the measured results. Poroviscoplasticity can explain the increasing pressure in the borehole. The measured overpressure can be reached with adequate viscoplastic model parameters.
