Planning, executing and interpreting coupled THM field experiments is a complex task. However, it is the key to understanding the intermediate and large scale coupled THM processes that govern fractured rock mass behaviour. By measuring and/or monitoring the THM response of the rock mass we can improve our understanding and validate existing constitutive models or develop new ones. This, in turn, contributes to increasing the confidence in our predictions and assessments. In this session we would like to discuss about the latest advances in this research area.
