Abstract Hydro-thermo-mechanical tests on joints in the Carnmenellis granite from Cornwall, southwest England, were carried out using a geothermal rock test facility. Both natural joints and artificial fractures were tested at effective normal stresses up to 40 MPa, differential pore pressures to 6 MPa and temperatures to 200°C. Experimental effective normal stress-joint closure and effective normal stress-joint permeability data were fitted by a range of deformation and hydraulic models… CONTINUE READING
