CIVIL-428 / 3 crédits

Enseignant: Nussbaum Christophe

Langue: Anglais


Summary

Objective is to provide an understanding of the problems in geo-energy projects. Underground as storage medium for carbon dioxide and radioactive waste and as energy source like deep geothermal systems.

Content

Keywords

structural geology, tectonics, natural and induced seiscimicity, stress measurements, borehole stability, hydraulic fracturing, deep geological disposal for radioactive wastes, deep geothermal systems, CO2 sequestration

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Soil mechanics, Geomechanics, Rock mechanics

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Construct a coherent geological model with the available data.
  • Anticipate the rock mass and hydraulic perturbations for any subsurface projects (i.e. deep geothermal, CO2 storage, construction of deep geological disposal for radioactive waste).
  • Design the rock mass and hydraulic perturbations for any subsurface projects (i.e. deep geothermal, CO2 sequestration,construction of deep geological disposal for radioactive waste).
  • Use correctly the acquired data in the project for building a coherent interpretation.

Transversal skills

  • Access and evaluate appropriate sources of information.
  • Continue to work through difficulties or initial failure to find optimal solutions.
  • Demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking

Expected student activities

attendance at lectures, completing exercices, reading selected scientific publications and doing a personal work

Assessment methods

During the semester, written control and personal work.
