Abstract

The paper describes an effort to match the measured pore pressure response induced by a heater located inside a borehole, in an intact saturated granitic rock mass. The effect of the heater is modelled by a combination of heat and fluid sources, which are singular solutions of the linear theory of thermoporoelasticity. It is shown that a single parameter, γ, which lumps several thermoporoelastic constants, controls the magnitude of the pore pressure induced by thermal loading.
