Anisotropy of shales is the subject of this report, and we use an example of the Jurassic Opalinus Clay from Mont Terri (Switzerland) that is being investigated in the context of radioactive waste disposal. The study is targeted at the geomechanical characterization of shale by laboratory testing. The overall aim is to improve the constitutive material laws and their application in numerical models.
