Abstract

The main results of the pre-test analyses of the HAW test field are summarized. A comparison between some convergence measurements and the numerical prediction is given. The analyses concern the rise of temperature, the deformation of the galleries, and the distribution of the stresses. Two-dimensional as well as three-dimensional numerical models have been used. The rock pressure in the ASSE and the constitutive relations of the rocksalt are addressed specifically as these items give the largest uncertainty in the numerical predictions.
