In order to improve the understanding of the thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) behaviour of the Callovo-Oxfordian Clay, an in situ heating test (TER experiment) has been realized by ANDRA at Meuse/Haute Marne URL during the last years. In this experiment, one power-control heater has been placed in a
horizontal borehole and several heating phases realized at distinct levels of power. Around this heating borehole, 32 temperature sensors, 5 water pressure sensors and 2 extensometers were placed in 8 different
boreholes. This abstract presents the interpretation works performed in parallel by running 3D THM simulations.
