Partner doubles a Bergen raise

Browsing on BBO through the boards played during the final of our national selection for teamsone could not helped to notice a -2000 scoreandthe 16 IMP gap on one of the boards. Looking at the bidding the missunderstanding become very clear very quickly.

The opponents are bidding 1H-3D Bergen raise and your partner doubles.

My first question would be: with your regular partner have you discussed the meaning of the double?

Second question is what should the double mean: take out double for hearts, a strong diamond holding to ask fordiamond lead or perhaps something else.

Thirdly what would be the meaning of a 3H bid from your partner: take out, Michaels, something else.

Thank you all for your feed-back
