The paper presents an interpretation ofthe Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) behaviour of three clays in three in-situ heating tests. First, the in-situ measurements are explored and common rock features are identified. Then a 3D THM model is set up for each ofthe tests and the HM response induced by the drilling of the heating boreholes as well as the THM response during the heating phase are discussed.
