Abstract. In order to study the relationship between rock mechanical properties and resistivity under deep underground environmental conditions, a rock resistivity test system was developed which can realize simultaneous control of high and low temperature, pressure, seepage and chemical environment, and the corresponding specimen sealing method was explored. The system mainly includes triaxial system, chemical permeation system, temperature control system and test control system. The reliability of the system was verified by tests and preliminary experiments. This device provides an important means to study the mechanical properties and resistivity characteristics of rocks in complex environments in deep-underground.

Short summary
A THMC multi field rock resistivity test system is developed, which has the functions of rock triaxial test and resistivity test under the condition of high and low temperature, high pressure and high salinity water seepage. A sealing method to prevent the formation of a water film on the side of the specimen is proposed based on the characteristics of the device. The device is suitable for studying the relationship between rock mechanical properties and resistivity in complex environments.
