This paper presents an experimental investigation and numerical modelling of the behaviour of a porous chalk by taking into account effects of saturating fluid. Two representative fluids, oil and water are considered. The laboratory testing programme includes two topics. First, conventional hydrostatic and triaxial compression tests are carried out on samples which are saturated with water and oil, respectively. The sensitivity of chalk behaviour to saturating fluid is clearly shown. Secondly… CONTINUE READING
