In the simulation of the Tunnel Sealing Experiment the behaviour of the clay bulkhead is investigated with a limited amount of experiment evidence available. Preliminary comparisons with the observed behaviour show that the thermal field is slightly over predicted. However, key trends in the mechanical response are identified and the hydraulic behaviour is captured reasonably well.
