Under the auspices of the DECOVALEX II project, the coupled hydromechanical responses, in the fractured volcanic rocks at Sellafield site, to a pump test and shaft sinking were studied. The aim of this paper is to describe the methodology for determining the hydromechanical effects of the shaft excavation. This methodology is based on the discrete fracture network (DFN) approach for hydraulic analysis...
