The Cigeo project is the French plan for a deep disposal center for radioactive waste. The excavation operations induce a network of fractures around the repository structures, which are to be built in the framework of the Cigeo project within the Callovo-Oxfordian claystone (COx) considered as a potential host geological formation.
The proposed research program concerns two main tasks; experimental and numerical. Further information on this position can be found in the attached file.
