Knowledge of in-situ stress at great depth is of fundamental importance for geothermal energy extraction and underground disposal of nuclear waste. In order to estimate In-situ stress at great depth with a high accuracy, Downward Compact Conical-ended Borehole Overcoring Method(DCCBO), which is one of stress relief method was developed. DCCBO method is applicable to a mud water-filled vertical/sub-vertical borehole.
Main results obtained in this study are summarized as follows :
1) An adhesive which is applicable lo a water-filled vertical/sub-vertical borehole bottom was selected.
2) Diving-bell type bonding device which is applicable to a water-filled borehole at a depth of 500m was developed.
3) 16-elements conical strain cell for DCCBO which contained nitrogen gas cylinder was developed.
4) The usefulness of the developed 16-elements conical strain cell in the isotropic rock is verified by loading and unloading tests to the cubic specimen with a borehole.
5) The usefulness of the gushing system of nitrogen gas from the tip of 16-elements conical strain cell is verified by laboratory test using a borehole model made of acrylic.
6) Bonding test of 16-elements conical strain cell to a rock specimen under water-filled condition was successful.
7) Specification of a multi-channel data logger for DCCBO was proposed.
