Brouard Consulting has been involved in many projects related to underground structures. Following is a representative listing of topics.

Salt caverns

  • Cavern abandonment (full project management including in-situ tests)
  • Cavern stability analysis
  • Full modeling of cavern blowout
  • Numerical computations (gas-filled or brine-filled caverns)


  • Well tightness tests (design, performance & back-analysis)
  • Determination of maximum allowable pressure, including complex cement behavior and loading scenario

Salt mine

  • Back-analysis of a mine collapse


  • Computation of earthquakes effects on underground structures (wells, galleries)

Creep tests

  • Creep tests under very small deviatoric stresses
