Accelerated Aging of Embedded Electrical Resistivity Sensor for Monitoring Concrete Structures.
Article
Full-text available
Concrete resistivity measurements strongly depend on the temperature and the water content of the structure. In this paper, a study of the effect of the temperature and saturation degree on electrical resistivity measurement is carried out using an embedded printed circuit board sensor to estimate water content profiles in concrete structures. Resi...

Underground radioactive waste disposal facilities must be monitored to guarantee their correct and safe exploitation during the early stage of their service life. This will be the case in Cigéo, the french industrial geological disposal facility for high-level and intermediate-level long-lived waste, which must be monitored for the first a hundred...

Desiccation influences the complex conductivity of porous media with disseminated metallic particles. We expand the mechanistic model developed in the previous papers of this series to include the effect of saturation upon the complex conductivity of mixtures of mineral grains, pyrite, and pore water. During desiccation, the salt is assumed to be s...

To prepare the construction and operation of a deep geological disposal facility, the mechanical behaviour of the rock formations has to be well known. One of the studied parameters is the Young’s modulus. A workflow has been developed to estimate static Young’s moduli in claystone and limestone formations on seismic lines. First, the dynamic Young...
Chapter
In this paper, a new approach to estimate Q factor of geological formations on seismic lines was proposed. The purpose was to evaluate the amplification of ground motion on a site dedicated to store radioactive waste. Attenuation introduced dissipative dispersion which could be measured from the frequency-dependent phase velocity of the VSP down-go...

The geological exploration of the Meuse/Haute-Marne area began in 1994. Several boreholes were drilled, and the Callovo-Oxfordian argillite, thought to become a potential storage formation, were cored and logged. 2D seismic surveys were completed, as well as geological field observations, and an underground research laboratory was created. A 250 km...

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), stable isotope geochemistry of micro-sampled cores, NMR well-logs and 3D modeling are used to investigate the carbonate permeability-porosity heterogeneity along 230 m-thick limestones of the Paris Basin. Despite the global low porosity and permeability of the limestones, two aquifers units with porosity greater th...

We have demonstrated the benefit of geostatistical processing both to quantify the quality of the seismic amplitude (SQI) and to perform depth conversion (Bayesian Kriging). The field example illustrates the potential of the seismic method to model the distribution of density, porosity and hydrogeological properties (specific surface, permeability...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We show how Stochastic (Geostatistics) processing of pre stack seismic data benefits to quantify the quality of the seismic amplitudes. The computation of a Stochastic Quality Index (SQI) specific to the stacking process quantifies the reliability of the stacked amplitude and can be considered as a reliable indicator of the preservation of true amp...

It is usually very difficult to identify and quantify the relative influence of tectonics, eustasy and climate on carbonate system evolution from sedimentary records. In order to improve our understanding of these mechanisms, we have traced for the first time, the evolution of the eastern Paris Basin platform throughout the entire Jurassic period....
Article

Several diagenetic models have been proposed for Middle and Upper Jurassic carbonates of the eastern Paris Basin. The paragenetic sequences are compared in both aquifers to propose a diagenetic model for the Middle and Late Jurassic deposits as a whole. Petrographic (optical and cathodoluminescence microscopy), structural (fracture orientations) an...

Micritic limestones exhibit large variation of (1) sedimentary texture from mudstone to packstone, (2) facies composition and (3) petrophysical properties (porosity, acoustic velocity). Those heterogeneities imply a complex distribution of fluid flow properties and a complex petrophysical signature. In the Eastern Paris Basin, Late Jurassic micriti...

Knowledge about porosity and permeability is essential to evaluate fluid content and to detect fluid flow. We present a procedure which allows to use geophysical data (i.e. full waveform acoustic data and reflection seismic data) for a better understanding of the distribution of the porous and permeable bodies. The methodology is based on laborator...
