Poroelastic hydraulic-response of fractured mudstone to excavation in the Horonobe URL; As an indicator of fracture hydraulic-disconnectivity

Ozaki, Yusuke; Ishii, Eiichi; Sugawara, Kentaro*

Extended abstract of International Conference on Coupled Processes in Fractured Geological Media; Observation, Modeling, and Application (CouFrac 2020) (Internet), 4 Pages, 2020/11

We perform the numerical simulation of the response of hydraulic head observed in HDB-6 during the excavation of the Horonobe URL to verify the existence of low effective permeable domain in the subsurface. The low permeable domain as an intact rock due to the low hydraulic fracture connectivity is estimated to exist in the deep domain while the permeability of the shallow domain is relatively high due to the hydraulic fracture connectivity there. Our simulation shows that the observed hydraulic head is affected by the Mandel-Cryer effect due to the hydrogeological structure and the effect for the duration of over years requires the low permeability as an intact rock in the deep domain. These results verify the existence of the low effective permeable domain in the deep subsurface estimated by the previous study.

In situ stress state is very important for the design of deep underground facility of high-level radioactive waste disposal repository. This study establishes a practical and effective method for estimating in situ stress state based on the measured convergence and detailed geological observations during gallery excavation. The convergence was measured in various directions of the loop gallery at 350m depth of the Horonobe URL; this allows determination of the stress state corresponding to the rock mass behavior in 120m $$times$$ 200m area. In situ stress state estimated by the back analysis considering existing faults and fractures showed a good agreement with that of estimated from hydraulic fracturing method.

Development of a back analysis method for the estimation of in situ stress based on the measured convergence in the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory

An in situ stress state is one of the important factors in the design of deep underground facility of high-level radioactive waste disposal repository. This study establishes a practical and effective method for estimating in situ stress state on the basis of the measured convergence during gallery excavation. The convergence was measured in various directions of the loop gallery at 350m depth of the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory; this allows determination of the stress state corresponding to the rock mass deformation behavior in an approximately 120 m* 200 m area. To estimate in situ stress state around that area, a back analysis method considering the existence of faults and fractures around the gallery was developed. The analyzed results showed a good agreement with the trend of in situ stress state estimated from hydraulic fracturing method.

In the design of deep underground structures such as high-level radioactive waste disposal repositories, the estimation of rock mass stress state is important as well as the estimation of mechanical characteristics of rock mass. This study establishes a practical and effective method for estimating in situ stress based on the convergence measurement results obtained during gallery construction of URL. The convergence was measured in various directions of the URL loop gallery at 350 m depth, and this will allow determination of the stress state over a large area using a back analysis method. In order to improve the accuracy of initial stress estimation, the relationship between convergence measurement results and geological situation of existing fractures were studied. The analysis results show good agreement with the in situ stress state results reported in previous studies and confirm the applicability of the proposed method.

How to estimate the initial stress state as well as a mechanical characteristic of rock mass is important in the design of deep underground structures. Some stress measurement methods using borehole, which methodology and evaluation method have been discussed in detail, are carried out if necessary. However, obtained results are often varying widely, so the evaluation of initial stress is difficult. Here, the initial stress state corresponding to the rock mass behavior of about 120m$$times$$200m area is evaluated using the convergence measurement results during tunnel excavation in 350m depth. Analysed result corresponded to that of other method, so the validity of the proposed method was shown.

Influence of rock spalling on concrete lining in shaft sinking at the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory

Tsusaka, Kimikazu; Inagaki, Daisuke; Nago, Makito*; Koike, Masashi*; Matsubara, Makoto*; Sugawara, Kentaro*

Dai-13-Kai Iwa No Rikigaku Kokunai Shimpojiumu Koen Rombunshu (CD-ROM), p.911 - 916, 2013/01

A repository for high-level radioactive waste in deep underground consists of several underground structures such as access and disposal drifts and shafts. In deep geological disposal project, a shaft is the first underground structure to be constructed and the last one to be backfilled. Therefore, the stability of shaft is one of key factors to steadily manage the project in the construction and operation phases. In this paper, the authors discuss influence of rock spalling on concrete lining in shaft sinking. Japan Atomic Energy Agency has been constructing three shafts (one is for ventilation and the others are for access use) up to a depth of 500 m in the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory. During the construction of the Ventilation Shaft (4.5 m in diameter) below a depth of 250 m, rock spalling occurred at several depths and an open crack has developed in a concrete lining installed just above rock spalling. The authors have measured geometry of shaft wall by using three-dimensional laser scanner. They also conducted numerical analysis in order to calculate change in stress distribution and deformation induced by rock spalling in a concrete lining and the surrounding rock. As a result, it was clarified that rock spalling induced tensile stress in the vertical direction in a concrete lining. Especially, the tensile stress in a concrete lining was likely to exceed tensile strength of a concrete lining in the case that it developed more than 100 cm in depth.
