Rock mechanic investigations serve to prove the stability and tightness of the storage during its entire life cycle. This is done through complex rock mechanical calculations and simulations. Thermodynamic simulations make it possible to investigate even complex storage scenarios and optimise operating methods. The long-term behaviour of the cavern with regard to convergence and its possible effects on the surface can also be shown. Subsidence modelling and preparation of plugging and abandonment concepts are also part of the overall rock mechanical concept and complete the spectrum of this special area of expertise.
