Abstract

Relationships between fracture growth and seismic emissions are still poorly understood. In this study, we investigate these relationships through an experiment at the laboratory scale. We performed a triaxial compression on an andesite sample while monitoring the microseismic activity. The deformation is imaged by two X-Ray tomogaphic images. The first has been done before and the second after the triaxial test. Finally, we intent to investigate the acoustic emission organization in time and space in the light of the fracture network to find correlations between the fracturing process and the seismic activity. Preliminary results are reported in this paper. Introduction
