CRIEPI’s Fractured Rock Studies - Outlook

CRIEPI’s goal for the 2011/2012 project phase is to measure fracture aperture distributions. Resin will be injected into the boreholes at the GTS to impregnate and stabilise the fracture surfaces. Samples from one of the target fracture zones will be excavated with the overcoring method and transported to the laboratory for analysis.

The GTS underground facilities are also available to interested 3rd parties for underground testing and research. The GTS offers cost-effective access to a fully developed, well characterised underground research facility with round the year logistical support - please contact Dr. Ingo Blechschmidt, Head of the Grimsel Test Site, for further details.
